While families search for creative, safe and healthy ways to stay balanced and busy during the COVID-19 outbreak, Carrie Fox, founder and CEO of Bethesda-based Mission Partners, and Sophia, her 10-year-old daughter, have written and released an action/adventure book titled Adventures in Kindness.
“When we set out to create this book, we didn’t know exactly where our adventure would take us,” said Carrie Fox. “But we knew we wanted to build a set of practical and fun ways that kids and their families could actively contribute good to our world.”
According to a release, “Adventures in Kindness is a 170-page action/adventure book (and complementary website) for kids and their families filled with color-coded kindness adventures for kids to participate in to support their communities, their schools, their minds, their families and more. (There are 9 categories and 52 adventures.) The book was illustrated by San Francisco artist Nichole Wong Forti.
“Parents, families, and teachers can download three free starter adventures, as well as order the book and merchandise on the book’s website, including a set of notecards inspired by kids, for kids and their families to write letters of kindness to people experiencing social isolation during COVID-19. 100 percent of the proceeds from the notecards will be donated to Feeding America in support of coronavirus relief efforts.
“Adventures in Kindness is ideal for kids between the ages of 7 and 12, but the content of the book is applicable to kids (and adults) of all ages. Kids and their families can take on adventures to help their school, their community, their family, and more with adventures such as:
- Organize a book swap with your friends
- Start a family giving jar
- Learn how to say hello in 35 languages
- Take on a family fitness adventure
- Learn how to calculate a generous tip
“This is the perfect book for kids (and their families) who love adventure and the world around them. It’s a surefire way to start anyone on a life of kind acts.”
The book is available at AdventuresinKindness.com and Amazon.com.
