Be Kind to Every Kind * By Maritza Oliver

Extending Our Circle of Compassion to All Living Things


Reviewed by Patricia Chan

"Be Kind to Every Kind" by Maritza Oliver is a wonderful children's book with a powerful message about justice and equality for all, no matter their race, gender, age, sexual orientation, class, ability, or species. 

Maritza is fearless in bringing up important topics that many shy away from. Indeed, the message in "Be Kind to Every Kind" is empowering for the younger generation, reminding them that regardless of their age, they can make a difference in the world. 

"Be Kind to Every Kind" is the very first children's social justice picture book that discusses different forms of discrimination and injustice in the world and how they are interconnected. The book encourages compassion and empathy in the younger generation, characteristics desperately needed in the world today. 

Not only does "Be Kind to Every Kind" have an incredibly important message, it is beautifully illustrated, bringing home the message of love, justice, compassion and equality on an artistic level. 

“Be Kind to Every Kind” is definitely worth picking up and reading together with your children and grandchildren!

Consumer Critique of the Week


Follow Your Heart Vegenaise

Follow Your Heart is my favorite brand by far. Their Veganaise is my go to staple for anything that calls for mayonnaise, including a dollop in my soup. They make the finest vegan cheeses - from taste to texture, which are highly recommended for those transitioning to a vegan lifestyle. My mouth is watering thinking about a vegan BLT on toast with a slice of Follow Your Heart American cheese, vegan bacon, lettuce, tomato and a shmear of Vegenaise to top of this vegan delight.
