This children’s picture book “Flying with Kindness” assists parents with ways to encourage children to show kindness.

Basil, the protagonist character, is a 5-year-old boy with a strong personality. Kindness doesn’t come naturally for Basil. Basil's parents are trying to teach him the importance of kindness, but he thinks kindness is too much work. By chance, Basils family meets an old lady an encounter which sets up a chain of events and teachable moments in kindness.
This is a great read-aloud book to help children learn to get along and share with one another. This book is especially suitable for young toddlers and is written for ages 2 to 8. Children will want this book read to them over and over again.
In his blurb, review author Scott Medbury, author of the “America Falls” series and father of four, offers his insight:
“’Flying with Kindness’ offers children a valuable lesson in kindheartedness and shows how one act of kindness can lead to another, and the positive effect on the recipient. It’s a beautiful, yet simply written story with eye-catching illustrations and, in a rare feat, the author has conveyed the overarching message in an entertaining but non-preachy manner. In a world much in need of a little compassion and understanding, this children’s book is a breath of fresh air.”
Eric Simmons, the author of “Flying with Kindness,” is a man of many talents. He is a commercial airline pilot. Eric is a world traveler who was born and raised in New York but currently lives in Nevada. He has a successful fear-of-flying app called Turbcast that was mentioned on Fox News and USA Today.
“I developed my passion for writing after taking a Learning Annex course a decade ago. After seeing my toddler’s reaction when I read to him, it inspired me to write a children’s book. Writing has always been my second passion.”
“Flying with Kindness” is illustrated by Blueberry Illustrations and will be published by Bookbaby. The book will be available for pre-order on Sept. 20, 2019, on the author’s website.
