Book Review: A Splash of Kindness by John Starley Allen


Book Description:
Great things begin with the smallest acts of goodness. These incredible, true stories began with a simple thought or action from another and became so much more. Be inspired by dedicated teachers, encouraging friends, and random acts of kindness. You don't need a high-powered title to make a profound impact. This book is guaranteed to remind you how your own compassion, courage, and character can change the world! "A wonderful set of stories that will cause you to examine the ripples you have caused." --Richard M. Siddoway, New York Times bestselling author of "The Christmas Wish" and "The Cottage Park Puzzle" "It's reassuring to be reminded of how simple expressions of character can influence lives for generations." --Caralyn and Mark Buehner, New York Times bestselling creators of "Fanny's Dream" and the Snowmen series

Rorie's Review:

This isn't the kind of book that you sit down and read in one sitting. Instead, this is one where you read one story at a time. It was interesting to read stories about famous people, such as Philo T. Farnsworth, who I have heard of, but really didn't know that much about. My favorite stories were the personal ones, though, mostly because they seemed a bit easier to relate to, but also because some of the longer stories tended to drag on a little bit.

This book makes you think about how you interact with other people every day, and how just a small act can greatly change someone else's life for better or for worse.
