All children in grades K-5 should own this book Sep 14, 2003
We are using this book in the elementary school that I work in. It is a great book for pbs, or any other program your school may have practicing kindness, helpfulness, and good behavior. It's about a group of children trying to make a change by performing good deeds for no reason at all. Also demonstrates teamwork, and how to convert an enemy into a friend. I think every child should own this book.
Goodness Gorillas Mar 7, 2002
This book is good for little kids. It is about a group of kids that are called the Goodness Gorillas. They work hard to do nice things like clean up garbage, sharpen pencils for their class, and bring in snacks for the class, ect. Even though they work really hard, a boy named Todd ruins it all!!!!!! What are they going to do? Will Todd stop messing every thing up? Can they still be the Goodness Gorillas? To find out read the book!
There is still Goodness in the World! Nov 6, 2001
I have to say I was a bit skeptical of the whole 'Chicken Soup' theme, but this book is wonderful. The story is very sweet and reminds all of us about how we can change the world with the little things we do. I found it especially helpful after the attacks of 9/11, when I wondered how to teach our children about spreading kindness and goodness in the world. Highly recommended!
An enduring story about kindness Apr 28, 2000
When the "Goodness Gorillas" start doing kind things for other people everyone pitches in except Todd. In the end the children learn the value of kindness, even to those who are not kind to us.
One of the books in the Chicken Soup for Little Souls' series, this book offers a nice story to read to your children - a story with a moral. It's my least favorite in the series, but it's still a good book to have on your child's shelf.
