Nice to be Nice© is a picture book that shows countless ways for children to be nice in their everyday lives. There are 32 pages of vibrant illustrations that show a diverse array of children in relatable situations. This is the first book in the Bella Flowers Books “to be” series. (information taken from the website)Nice to be Nice is printed with vegetable-based ink on 30% recycled paper and a tree will be planted for every book printed through a partnership with Eco-Libris.
Nice to be Nice is an adorable book. The illustrations by Marcus D. Jones are bright and colourful and compliment the story beautifully. All three of my kids (ages 2, 6 and 7) enjoyed this book. My sons thought it was fun that the words were written differently on each page and "decorated" in fun ways.
I was able to use the illustrations as a starting point for conversations on HOW to be nice. This is especially useful for my son with ASD and ADHD. He struggles in that area so we are always looking for ways to help him.
My personal favourite line in the book is "where no one is perfect but everyone is kind". That would indeed make a wonderful world!
