One Smile

In Team Time last week, we read One Smile by Cindy McKinley.  This book is about random acts of kindness.  The moral of the story is that even the smallest acts of kindness can powerfully impact the lives of others.  In the story, Katie sees a sad-looking man who has lost his job and smiles at him. That smile touches his heart, starting a string of warmth and selfless giving which flows from person to person, happily affecting all who interact with Katie.  One Smile beautifully illustrates the impact of a random act of kindness.
