It’s the final week of the 100 Acts of Kindness Project! This week we are focusing on doing acts of kindness in the world around us. We love getting books from the library so decided to spread some kindness to a stranger with a library book note!
We’ve written library letters before and there is something about the idea of leaving a note in a book you’ve loved for a stranger to find that is so much fun.
Making your own library book note is super easy! I cut out a bunch of heart shapes for the kids and they wrote and drew on them. Then we stuck them inside a book and returned it to the library for someone to find.
Use common sense when creating your library love notes and make sure not to add anything to the notes that may stick to or damage the book you are leaving it in. Keeping the book you love in great condition for the next person to read is very important!
Doing an act of kindness for someone that will never know that it came from you is good practice for kids. Part of the fun of doing acts of kindness is seeing how happy it makes someone else and having them thank you. Secret acts of kindness for strangers teaches kids to do good without the expectation of gratitude.
Your challenge for this week is to participate in International Book Giving Day and give a book to a child that you do not know. There are many ways you can do this—leave one in a hospital waiting room, donate one to a homeless shelter or school, or donate to an organization that provides books to kids around the world.
