Kindness Matters: Sharing Bees incorporates social skills, emotions and nature into a fun and engaging story for children. I liked that there were many approaches to sharing within the story and a focus on how sharing makes you feel and the good it accomplishes. In the story sharing is shown as not just giving up something of yours, but taking on something from someone else to help your team and community. I enjoyed that the book also included some common flowers that bees like to visit as well as their colors for skill practice. My three year old enjoyed the bright illustrations and many buzzing sound effects. I thought that the bee bodies with human heads looked a little strange, but it does help to get across the point that sharing isn't just for bees.
