This poetic board book full of metaphor is a how-to on treating others with kindness.

From sunrise to sunset, a young child has opportunities to demonstrate kindness—to their parent, their pet and themself—and to receive kindness as well. Written in metaphor with gentle rhymes and hinging on familiar words, Kindness Is a Golden Heart shows young readers how to use their "golden heart" by guiding them through many ways to be kind.
