THE KINDNESS OF CHILDREN.
Edition: 3rd printing.
Cambridge, MA: Harvard University Press, (1999) dj. Hardcover - "Visiting a London nursery school, Vivian Paley observes the schoolchildren's reception of another visitor, a handicapped boy named Teddy, who is strapped into a wheelchair, wearing a helmet, and barely able to speak. A predicament arises, and the children's response--simple and immediate--offers Paley the purest evidence of kindness she has ever seen. . . the book quietly brings together the moral life of the very young and the very old. Paley lets her listeners and storytellers take us down unexpected paths, where the meeting of story and real life make us wonder: Are children wiser about the nature of kindness than we think they are?" 139 pp. ISBN: 0-674503589.
