Awards and Reviews:

Love is Kind was a 2020 Anna Dewdney Read Together Award Honor book!

“The first time I saw this book, I fell in love with Owl. Then, I got a double dose of love when I read the book. What a beautiful message…love ends up going to where its needed most – if we let it – like sweet little Owl did. In life, sometimes our plans don’t go the way we want, but if our hearts are in the right place, it all works out in the end. Life does have a funny way of rewarding good-doers, that’s for sure!” – Amazon Review

“This is a sweet, entertaining story, and helpful for kids to see how Little Owl handles each challenging moment on his quest to find the perfect gift for his grandmother. Readers can sense Little Owl’s internal struggle to make good choices/do the right thing, even though it’s not always easy. The uplifting ending makes it all worthwhile! Entertaining, engaging, delightful!” – Amazon Review
