The book about a young girl who did an extraodrinary deed to one person in which created a chain reaction of other good deeds. Good book to read when demonstrating to students how one good deed can affect others. ( )

Lesson: How Can I Be A Good Helper At School?
  ccsdss | Feb 25, 2016 |
A kid's version of paying it forward. Ordinary Mary's gifts of blueberries to her neighbors inspires one to make blueberry muffins for others who are further inspired to do good. Each time, the gift of kindness is passed forward to others until over 6 billion people (as illustrated in a pyramid of numbers) have been touched, all thanks to Mary's one simple act. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0879059788, Hardcover)

It can when she's Ordinary Mary-an ordinary girl from an ordinary school, on her way to her ordinary house-who stumbles upon ordinary blueberries. When she decides to pick them for her neighbor, Mrs. Bishop, she starts a chain reaction that multiplies around the world. Mrs. Bishop makes blueberry muffins and gives them to her paperboy and four others-one of whom is Mr. Stevens, who then helps five different people with their luggage-one of whom is Maria, who then helps five people-including a man named Joseph who didn't have enough money for his groceries-and so on, until the deed comes back to Mary.

It's a feel-good story that inspires and celebrates a world full of ordinary deeds!

Emily Pearson is the co-author of Fuzzy Red Bathrobe: Questions from the Heart for Mothers and Daughters. Emily and her two children live in Salt Lake City, Utah. This is her first children's book.
