Each Kindness, written by Jacqueline Woodson, is a story about a girl named Chloe who reacts unkindly when a new girl, Maya, arrives at her school and tries to make friends. Chloe excludes her from group games, and does not make Maya feel welcome at all. Maya eventually leaves, and the story ends with Chloe feeling regret for her actions. This story teaches about the impact our choices have on others. The book does not have a happy ending, hence also teaching the lesson that, even though we may all have been unkind at one time or another, we may not always have a second chance at kindness.
