Spread kindness with Heartley! The Gnome in Your Home – A Tradition of Kindness is an illustrated, rhyming children’s book about a group of gnomes who, due to their small size and lack of magical skills, question if they can make a difference. The gnomes come to realize that they have a valuable gift for kindness. Based on this discovery, and the understanding that small acts of kindness can change the world, the gnomes make a plan to visit homes in order to teach children and adults how to start a tradition of kindness. Included with the book are 30 removable acts of kindness cards, which make it super easy for families to get started. Simply choose a kindness card and discuss how you can work together to plan and execute that act of kindness. Included with the hardcover book is a 12″plush gnome named Heartley. He is a cozy, cuddly reminder to continue on your kindness journey.
“The little gnome is really adorable. My daughter loves the bright colors and the little purple heart decal on his hat.”
“The book sends a wonderful message: The gnomes are initially sad because they don’t have magical powers like fairies and wizards, but they soon learn their kindness is their power. The back of the book has small kindness cards you can cut out with kindness tasks such as donating a book or helping set the table.”
“It’s a great way to reinforce the concept of kindness.”
“I like the little task cards because it takes the learning beyond the book.”
