ABOUT THE BOOK
When Charley goes to the playground and sees Emma, a girl with limb differences who gets around in a wheelchair, he doesn’t know how to react at first. But after he and Emma start talking, he learns that different isn’t bad, sad, or strange–different is just different, and different is great! This delightful book will help kids think about disability, kindness, and how to behave when they meet someone who is different from them.

Cassandra's Review-  Most of my kids have special needs and I know firsthand how terrible the community can really be.   I am happy that this book sheds light on how to get past a disability and see a person.  I think this should be read in schools and there are adults that can still learn from it. 


Go and Do Likewise 999+ Ways to Be a Visible or Invisible Samaritan Review

Author Marta Montalvo-Ramos has released her inspiring, easy-to-read guide to shifting one’s mindset away from negativity and toward compassion and bringing joy and positivity into others’ lives as well as one’s own life through acts of service, no matter how small.

In “Go and Do Likewise… 999+ Ways to Be a Visible or Invisible Samaritan,” Montalvo-Ramos implores readers to change their own thinking, focus on the good in others, and find ways to refocus when a toxic situation overwhelms them. Ultimately, Montalvo-Ramos hopes to share with readers the healing power of grace, hope, and faith and unburden them from the fear and discouragement that has held them back in the past.


“This book is a call for others to stop waiting on the best circumstance before acting with mercy and compassion,” Montalvo-Ramos said. “Helping others is not just for the rich; Everyone has the chance to show love and empathy to the people they cross paths with.”


Packed with simple ideas to bring more kindness into everyday activities like shopping at the grocery store or attending family events, “Go and Do Likewise” offers opportunities for people from all walks of life to inject more kindness and compassion into their day-to-day interactions with people and is focused on showing readers how they can think creatively about taking time to help others, regardless of how many dollars they have in their wallet.

Cassandra's Review- A great book of tidbits that are fun to read.  It sets a good reminder to be more positive and kind which in this world can be very hard.  I like that the ideas get you off of your mobile devices and into the day.  I would recommend for anyone feeling down or needing a happy life.
