Reviews - What do customers think about Small Acts of Kindness?

Small Acts, Big Effects  May 7, 2008
When my children first heard this story, they attempted to do all sorts of little things to help. Helping in little ways makes Mama happy, when Mama's happy, there's more care involved in making dinner and keeping house, when there's more care in housekeeping, Daddy's happy. And when Daddy's happy, the whole family is happy. The small acts in this book lead to the supreme act of kindness, God sending his Son to redeem the world.

The recent one-star review doesn't do this book justice. Just because the reviewer happens not to believe that Jesus is our Redeemer doesn't mean that the book is in any way bad. Jesus *was,* after all, born. That's an historical fact. And any birth is a miraculous act of kindness from God, don't you agree?

This book is an excellent study on circle and cause and effect stories and on acting with love toward each other. All around, it's one of those stories that warms you to your toes when you read it. It warms those who hear it as well. It's well worth the price. We use it over and over again.
Beautiful Message  Nov 24, 2007
This is a beautiful book that is simply written and easy for any child 3 and up to understand. Kindness is something that can be instilled in their hearts and that they can act on as they grow. Very endearing.
This book did NOT need to go there  Nov 20, 2007
I bought this book during an this site sale. Actually, I bought 2 copies, one for home and one for daycare. Thought it is a really good lesson to teach about doing small acts of kindness. And the book seemed to live up to my expectations as I read it to my son for the first time. From the decoration of it, I thought it might be a biblical related story, likely something about the Golden Rule. Wonderful. Ummmm.... yeah... without any warning whatsoever, it ends with the little boy who was given some oil by a passing merchant as a small act of kindness, running toward the manger where Jesus was just born. Now was that really necessary? At least advertise the book for what it is. I'm jewish, would never have bought this book had I known. Very sneaky to not say a word. Now I have two copies of it that I am giving to my catholic friend tonight just to get them out of my house. I'd never have wasted the money on this book. I did get 18 more books on the same sale, quite a few of them for daycare, so they won't miss this book. Just a warning to be completely sure that you want a christian story when buying this book. You'd never know otherwise.
