Below is the review from a book club subscriber

‘Our 9 and 10 year old were SO excited to receive their latest book, “Malala’s Magic Pencil”. From the moment they opened the package, oh my goodness, they couldn’t contain their excitement about reading it together. My 10 year old daughter, Jade, had read the book in school, so she was VERY excited to read it again, and to introduce it to her brother! We had THE BEST late night chat before bed, thanks to the awesome insert included with age appropriate dialogue starters, about what they would do with their magic pencil. Some of the ideas included building homes for the homeless to live in for free, making/giving things to people to make them smile and help them, etc. We also talked a lot about opportunities to stand up for others and what that can look like. Such awesome dialogue!! Thank you for encouraging children and adults to engage in learning, reading and becoming more aware of how to be compassionate and caring by understanding other’s perspectives.’

  1. It is important people realise that everything that a child goes through has an impact on their whole life. That is the present life and their adulthood. As a parent I want my child to experience life to the full and be able to learn so that they have all the tools they need to have the life they deserve in the future.

  3. I love the idea of raising a global “kidizen” and also the subscription model to make this an ongoing effort that shows up monthly to continues teaching the social concepts. It’s helpful to start these conversations early so that kids understand what impacts (both positive and negative) that their choices can affect.

  4. I agree that the most important thing for children is to learn empathy, compassion and love for the world around them. I think it is a good offer and that all parents should have it and I think that everyone can afford it and buy it. I have a lot of novels and books and I still have the habit of reading to this day. I think it is a good topic and everyone should read it and buy your products. Every part.

  5. Teaching kids to accept who they are and celebrate their differences is what the world is missing right now, they’ll grow up with compassion and have a better view of the world too not to mention higher acceptance towards people of different cultures. Excited to see what the Be Kind and Do Good toolkits look like, can’t wait to 😀
