What if animals did what YOU do? This bestselling story imagines how animals would show kindness!

If animals tried to be kind. . .what would they do? Porcupine would knit Giraffe a long scarf. Squirrel would help Dog diggity-dig for a bone. And Bear would surprise Snake with a honey cake. Across the animal kingdom, every creature would be kind in their own special way.
