Mrs. Laurin-Young and her students created“𝐒𝐩𝐫𝐢𝐧𝐤𝐥𝐢𝐧𝐠 𝐊𝐢𝐧𝐝𝐧𝐞𝐬𝐬”when they were inspired by all the different ways that they can spread a little bit of kindness. The second-grade authors put forth their best effort, researching, writing about, and illustrating their kindness book, before they sent their completed pages to be published. 🤩📚
