Cara's Kindness
Kristi Yamaguchi, illustrated by John Lee

Ages 3 to 9 years 

New from Olympic gold medalist and New York Times bestselling author Kristi Yamaguchi—in Cara's world, the wheel of kindness keeps on turning! 

As Cara the cat is struggling to choose a soundtrack for her figure skating performance, she notices that Darby the dog seems a little down. When she discovers Darby is sad because he doesn't know how to ice skate, Cara happily puts aside her problem to help out a friend with the caveat that Darby should pay it forward. Before long, Darby helps out a friend, who helps out another friend, and the circle of kindness makes its way back to Cara just in time for her figure skating performance! By the end of the story, kids will learn that to get kindness, it's important to give kindness!

Following her figure skating victories at the 1992 Winter Olympics and World Championships, Kristi founded the Always Dream Foundation to support the lives of children through educational recreational initiatives.
