Pat is a young boy living in the big city. He begins each day with a huge smile. Pat greets his fuddy-duddy doorman with this same big smile. And nothing happens-or so Pat thinks. The reader is taken on a journey following a sequence of events, unknown to the main character, unfolding just how far that simple act of a smile went. And vise versa- what may not happen when Pat decides to stay in bed all day. THE RIPPLE is inspired by the beloved It’s a Wonderful Life, and aims to prove to one and all, just how important each person and a simple act of kindness can really be

This is such a sweet story about how one act of kindness can spread and make a difference in the world. I love the message in this book. Even though Pat is just one small person, he can make a very large impact. I think kids can often feel small or helpless, and this book serves as a reminder that they are grand. With its classic illustrations and its heart-warming message, The Ripple will make a perfect gift for the holidays.
