"POWERFUL. POIGNANT. PERFECTION!" – The Children's Book Review

"One small act of kindness can make a lasting impact. So can one powerful book. The Power of One by Trudy Ludwig and Mike Curato is that book." — Pat Zietlow Miller, New York Times bestselling author of Be Kind

"Thought-provoking, uplifting and actionable, The Power of One will inspire young readers to plant the seeds of kindness in their own classrooms and communities." — Alexandra Penfold, New York Times bestselling author of All Are Welcome

"...a perfect book for teachers to read in their classrooms at the beginning of the school year. It is a treasure!" — Children's Books Heal 

"...a beautiful portrait of change. The words written by Trudy Ludwig in this story read like a poem. Her spare, truthful text makes profound statements...a lovely example in words and artwork of the art of healing. I highly recommend this title for your professional and personal collections." — Librarian's Quest
