Be Kind by Pat Zietlow Miller - ESSENTIAL

A little girl named Tanisha accidentally pours grape juice on herself at school and all the kids laugh, except for one kid who feels sad for Tanisha.  As the child tries to consider ways that they can help Tanisha after having a bad day, many forms of kindness are explored.  Eventually, the child decides to make Tanisha a picture and they form a friendship.
