We Really Do Care By Tami Lewis Brown

Inspired by current events, this picture book shows the importance of compassion, empathy, and demonstrates how even the smallest act of kindness can make a difference.

A little boy has a ball. It's his, and he really doesn't care if nobody else has a ball. He's not sharing. He's not sharing his pets either. Or his family. Especially not his brother. But then he realizes that both he and the new little girl he meets--the one who's all alone without a ball or a pet or a family of her own--are actually quite similiar. And when he sees their similarities instead of their differences, he's happy to share. Even his little brother.

With gentle text from Tami Lewis Brown and sweet illustrations from Tania de Regil, this poignant and touching picture book challenges each and every one of us to to lend a helping hand. Because we really should care. Perfect for fans of Be Kind and All Are Welcome.

My Thoughts...

 This was  such a cute book for the kiddos. It has much needed life lessons that are written so it's easy to read and for the kids to understand.
 I loved the message and I think you will as well.
The illustrations were cute as well and eye catching so the kids will enjoy the pictures while you are reading to them.
The Mary Reader received this book from the publisher for review. A favorable review was not required and all views expressed are our own.


  1. I wish my boys were still little....I would love to have had books like this for them. Thanks for sharing!

  2. This year I am only buying books for gifts for Christmas, so I am adding this one for the children.

  3. Nice for the little's to learn from a book.

  4. Sharing and being kind, we need more parents teaching that to our kids. This sounds like a winner to me.
