Children’s Book Teaches Kindness to All
Alexis Bloomer’s debut book on bully prevention
Have you ever been picked on because you’re “different”? How did it make you feel? Have you ever picked on anyone because he or she is different? How do you think that person felt? Inspired by her personal experiences, Alexis Bloomer has created a children’s book of rhymes that teaches respect, understanding, and acceptance of all people regardless of their differences in “Kindness is Key.” In her book, she teaches young children about bullying and what to do if they are bullied or see somebody else being bullied.
“I believe now, more than ever, that the world needs a book that encourages acceptance and kindness,” said Bloomer. “As a victim of bullying, I know that it can at times seem easier to give up or reciprocate the hate, but I’m hoping that my book instead, encourages children to not give in to the standards of the world.”
“Kindness is Key” promotes self-love and teaches children to apply its principles in everyday life, proving that kindness still matters. The book includes a ‘Kindness Pact’ for kids to sign to say they will always choose kindness over bullying as well as writing down ways they can be more kind in everyday life. LOVE!
About the author: Alexis Bloomer is a journalist, entrepreneur, and first-time author. In 2011, as a college freshman, she used her experiences with being bullied to write a children’s book about how to associate rhyming with kindness. Bloomer put away the book for six years before deciding to publish it. In a time when the world could use more kindness, she hopes her book inspires children to choose kindness to prevent bullying.
