What if everybody chose to be kind? 

If you tell someone that they can’t play with you, there’s no harm done, right? But what if everybody said that? What if everybody forgot to be kind…and made fun of other kids’ artwork at school, or told a fib, or refused to share with a person in need? The world wouldn’t be a very nice place to live. But what if everybody thought before they spoke, so the world would be a kinder place? 

With clear prose and lighthearted artwork, this companion book to the bestseller What If Everybody Did That? explores the power of words and shows kids that the things we say matter.  

Ellen Javernick's What If Everybody Said That? is a timely and colorful picture book with a meaningful message about kindness. Through simple, yet thought provoking text and relatable scenarios, this picture book explores topics such as selfishness, bullying, and thoughtless behavior in age appropriate ways that don't simply tell little readers that these things are bad, but encourages readers to think about why these things are bad and how they can respond to, react to, and change these rude behaviors. Madden's engaging and lively illustrations are just as important as the text and really capture the book's message.  

With its heartfelt message and amusing pictures, What If Everybody Said That? is a great tool to introduce little readers to the concepts and importance of kindnessinclusivity, the power of words, and taking responsibility for one's actions and speech.
