Everyone needs to feel loved. It's a thing that everyone desires to have whether they know it or not. But, is it always easy to give out that love? Especially to those who have hurt us, and even more to those who we just don't like for whatever reason. No, it's not always easy to show that love, but in the book Everybody, Always for Kids by Bob Goff and Lindsey Goff Viducich, there are plenty of sweet stories to remind us of why we should do exactly that, love, always.

This beautifully illustrated book from Tommy Nelson Publishing has the best artwork and is bursting with color. The hardback cover has a picture that's sure to invite any child or adult in to read. It's just a fun and cute book. It even includes an attached ribbon bookmark to keep track of where you are reading.
|This book has a little thickness to it, but over all, it's a good size. About the size of a kids' chapter book.|
This cute little book is a great size for kids to handle. The pages and cover are good quality and thick to hold up for many years of use.
|Some of the beautiful artwork. I love to see it all throughout the book.|
My boys (ages 10 and 12) and I enjoyed reading/listening to the author's personal stories of kindness and charity altogether. They include giving/sending cake pops to someone that you might not like, carrying a bucket around to remember patience and filling others' buckets, or a story about a neighbor who developed cancer and the neighborhood parade came by to cheer her on. These are just a few of the stories that show just how much loving someone can really turn things around and always for the better.

I am always pretty excited when there are lesson plans available to go along with books, so of course we tried them out! We were able to use the lesson plans that went with one of the first stories in the book, and it involved giving cake pops as an optional activity. So, we made cake pops and ended up giving them to some neighbors we love since they didn't turn out the prettiest. It was fun to think about who we'd give them to anyway. Next time I think I'll definitely do as the author did in his story though, buy some cake pops to give! It's such a fun gift.

This is such a heartwarming book. I think all of the stories can really inspire families and kids to get out there and love everyone. If you'd like to see what others have to say about Everybody, Always for Kids, you can click on the banner below!
