Being kind is contagious as a new girl navigates the art of making friends in a picture book suited for children starting school or moving to a new place.

But soon she learns that receiving small acts of kindness--someone saying hi, or saving a hoop for her--makes her feel braver, and that passing friendliness along is a good feeling, too. Before long, Sukie, Joe, Poppy, and Stan are all becoming friends Young readers are invited to join them as they explore meeting new people, celebrating differences, being thoughtful, and standing up for one another.
