Author Biography: When David Rice was seven years old, he observed a small dog trying to wake its mother which had been killed by a passing car. As he watched the grieving puppy's vain attempts, he was struck by the depth of sadness and pain. David's lifelong interest in feelings - both animal and human - comes through in his books, Do Animals Have Feelings Too?, Lifetimes and Because Brian Hugged His Mother. Lifetimes introduces some of nature's longest, shortest and most unusual lifetimes and the lessons we can learn from them. Because Brian Hugged His Mother shows how a chain reaction of kindness can spread through a whole school and community as a result of a single hug. David Rice is retired elementary and special education teacher, currently residing in southern California.

This is a story I just picked up and read on the display in the library. I forgot the title but I loved it. I've been searching for it ever since. It's a wonderful book showing how we can help others have a better day from the little things we do.

As an retired educator, I love positive books that easily demonstrate how contagious kindness is. This is a precious message and book for children.
