On the ideal playground, all kids are equal. They take turns on the swings, play fair during kickball, and help each other up when someone falls and skins their knee. In all areas of life, we have much to learn from the playground kids.

Be Nice. The End. distills the wisdom of the playground kids into seven simple values:

  • Inclusion
  • Empathy
  • Acceptance
  • Courage
  • Perseverance
  • Perspective
  • Kindness

Featuring thought-provoking messages from inspirational speaker Bryan Skavnak and darling, diverse faces illustrated by Wendy Kieffer Shragg, Be Nice. The End. teaches us that all the playgrounds of life are better when everyone—no matter their age, skin color, ability, shape, or size—is nice.
