I am writing about a new book I have co-created with my brother and a few friends.
It’s called the Kindness Book.
The Kindness Book was inspired by my late father Robert Acker Holt. It is dedicated to the small but profound acts of kindness he experienced during the holocaust, that stayed with him throughout his lifetime.
Dad loved books, loved story-telling and loved harebrained schemes. So, I think he’d be approving, and humbled as we are to see how well loved the book is: used by c. 55000 children across the world in 15 countries.
We are planning an inaugural event in November 2019 in the House of Commons – kindly hosted by Robert Halfon MP – to demonstrate to politicians and key decision makers how kindness transcends all barriers.
