The theme in RAIN is kindness. Also be nice to everyone even if you don't know them.
When the kid asked his mom if he could have hot coco he said please. He was also nice when the guy at the store told him hi and he said hi back. And also when he gave a grumpy man his hat back because the old man dropped his hat. This makes me think what if everyone was nice how would our world be?

I think the theme is kindness because some girls got in trouble but they learned to be kind. Some girls named Gage, Kenyon, and Maeve treated some new girl names Lyla badly so there being bully's. For example the three girls that are being bully's her are whispering bad and mean things about her. The three girls are making fun of Lyla because she is hanging out with a friend that is a boy named Jamie Aldrich. Jamie helped Lyla and her brother set up there Facebook page. Based on what read the three girls where not being nice to her in the begging and being nice to her in the middle because at the end Gage told everybody at the school that Lyla stole the test that was missing. This book makes me think that no one should be a bully because it hearts people's feelings.

Papa's Pastries
Charles Toscano and Sonja Lamut

I think the theme is kindness because papa was awake baking pastries. From the shadows Miguel watched as papa prayed. When papa was done, papa removed the pastries. Miguel helped papa put the pastries in the sack and then they started their journey to the first village. Miguel thought they would sell many pastries here. But the villagers did not have money to give. But the villager was as thin as a skeleton so papa gave him some pastries. This book makes me think I will always show kindness by helping others.

Boxes for Katje
Candace Fleming

I think the theme of the book, Boxes for Katje is kindness because someone named Rosie sent boxes to Katje and her town to make them happy. After the war people died and there was not much people lift in a tiny Dutch town of Olst. But Katje is still alive she young and poor. But in Indiana a girl named Rosie sent Katje and her town stuff to keep alive like socks, surger, chocolate, and cloths. Every time after Rosie would send Katje would send her a thankyou letter and tell Rosie what she did not have the stuff that Rosie gave her Then Rosie would send her a box and a letter and they would just keep on doing it. For a thankyou for Rosie Katje sent a full box of tulip buds to grow in her town to make it beautiful and Rosie was super happy. This book makes me think that everyone sould have stuff that's lovely and not just dust and old and everyone sould be kind.
