Welcome to the Kids’ Kindness Club!
Being kind is the best thing you can be. So we’ve created a Kindness Club just for kids. If you haven’t already, click here to join the club (it’s free!) and you will receive our fortnightly Kindness Club email.
This week, Greig is talking about Children’s Mental Health Week and why looking after yours is SO important. We also have a special guest giving you some tips about how you can be kind to your mind.
Ned Kindelbottom is also sharing some amazing kind news about what some of YOU have been up to.

SHOW AND TELL
We have international Story Time listeners! Here we have Isla, who is watching from Scotland…
…and Gracie who is watching all the way from Los Angeles in the US!
Thank you for sharing these wonderful photos with us!
Well done everyone!
This week, Tanya is reading a book about speaking kindly to yourself and building self-confidence. Fabulous FiFi the Flamenco Flamingo is a fun tongue twister of a book, so to see Tanya try to read it without getting tripped up – watch and giggle along here.
With thanks to Owlett Press for their kind permission. You can order your own copy here.
KIND STORY OF THE WEEK
We LOVE hearing about kind things from around the world, especially when they come from you!
This week we are celebrating Jack. Jack has done TWO kind things recently! Firstly, he gave his spare school socks to a girl in his class when hers became wet in the snow. Secondly, he asked an older lady on the bus if she wanted his seat. You must be so proud of yourself Jack, well done for spreading kindness!
