Share Some Kindness, Brong Some Light

By Apryl Stott December 29, 2020

Gorgeously illustrated and overflowing with heart, Apryl Stott’s debut picture book shares the delightful friendship between Coco and Bear. On a quest through a wintery forest, the two friends go on a mission to spread joy—but the woodland creatures are skeptical of Bear’s intentions. After all, bears are scary and shouldn’t be trusted! Share Some Kindness, Bring Some Light has the makings of a new classic that everyone needs and can appreciate.

A little girl and her friend Bear learn the true meaning of selfless kindness in this sweet, stunningly illustrated debut picture book. Bear is sad. All the other animals think he’s mean because he’s so big. But his human friend, Coco, offers to help him. Coco shares her grandmother’s advice: “When life gets dark as winter’s night, share some kindness, bring some light.”

They decide to bake cookies to “share some kindness” and make lanterns to “bring some light.” But when the cookies and lanterns don’t work, they must look for another way to win over the other animals. And while they’re at it, Coco and Bear just might discover that kindness is a gift that only comes from the heart.
