Woodson, Jacqueline. Each Kindness. Illustrated by E.B. Lewis. Penguin Young Readers, 2012. Maya is new to the class. She wears old, torn clothes. One of her shoes has a broken strap. Chloe and her two best friends don't want any other kids to play, especially not that new girl Maya. Maya does all she can to be a friend - but Chloe, Kendra and Sophie whisper and tease and ignore her. And one day, she is gone. And even when Chloe begins to realize what a little kindness could have done - it is too late. A powerful, poignant story about judging others, bullying and meanness - and about bravery. Winner Book for Younger Children, 2013.
