Good People Everywhere is a children's picture book written by Lynea Gillen and illustrated by Kristina Swarner. Created for ages 3 and up, this book helps children become aware of all of the people in the world around them that do good things for others. From the teacher who teaches math, to the big sister who watches her little brother, to the farmer who plants food seeds, to the young student who helps a friend with a hurt knee, there are good people everywhere. In a world where children often live in fear of the "big bad boogey-man" this book is a refreshing look at all of the ways we can help each other and live in peace.
This award-winning storybook encourages children to think of ways they can help others and the back of the book even has suggestions on ways to do things for others. I love this book and have read it several times to my preschoolers. The early childhood years are an important time to instill the value of doing good things for others because preschoolers are so focused on "me, me, me" and "mine" that they need gentle guidance to see outside their own wants. The book is written in simple understandable language and the illustrations are beautiful and engaging. It's a wonderful addition to our library!
