After reading this book and discussing provocative questions, my students are sure to be inspired to be kind to both friends and strangers! Do we have a maximum amount of kindness to spread around? Or is it unlimited? Why can’t we be nice all the time, and to everyone, especially when “nice” isn’t a material good? My students are sure to be empowered to make a difference by using simple gestures of kindness. What an even bigger math problem we’ll have to solve if we are all nice to more than 5 people!

Guido, Thanks for your inspiring and kind words! And thank you for listening. Your suggestion of donating a book to a local library is a great one. I thought I'd post here, also, links to two Family Literacy organizations which accept online donations as well as direct involvement: Canada: Raise-A-Reader        US: First Book Thanks again for listening...and may your yarn never be knotted, Andrea

It may seem funny to think about the reach of good deeds. Your show does a good deed in a way by sharing books and entertainging others. And this deed probably inspires others to share the books you talk about with their kids, kids in their life, or donating books to schools. Perhaps you could try and map and count (the math thing) the effect of your show on your audience. After thinking about it.. I would be willing to donate a kids book to my public library. p.s. It was great meeting you mark and the show is great
