More About Hallinan & P.K.

P. K. Hallinan P.K. Hallinan began writing children's books 40 years ago when his wife asked him to make a book for their two young sons as a Christmas gift. He did, and the feedback he got from friends and neighbors inspired him to write more books. Since then, P.K. has written and illustrated nearly 100 children's books and has sold more than 9,000,000 copies worldwide.

P.K. was born in Los Angeles in 1944 and spent his youth primarily in Bethesda, Maryland and in the San Fernando Valley. Although P.K. never studied art, his disappointment with the work of the artist assigned to illustrate his first book motivated him to learn to draw. He has been illustrating his own books ever since.

"If I did any one thing right," says P.K., "I decided very early on to write books that help children and parents alike have better and happier lives. That decision has kept many of my books in-print for more than 25 years, because the values I teach are timeless." His newest book, "A LIFE THAT MATTERS: Five Steps to Making a Difference", is his first book for adults. In it he describes five simple ways to add significance to virtually any career.

P.K. is also an ordained minister. He lives with his wife, Jeanne, and his boxer, Betty, in the mountains above Ashland and also at the beach, in Brookings, Oregon.

P. K. Hallinan currently resides in Ashland.

So-So  Mar 9, 2007
P.K. Hallinan is a prolific children's author and illustrator, and Let's Be Kind is just one of several offerings by the author that attempts to teach good behavior. "God hands me chances to simply be kind," the text says, then shows a young boy sharing with a little girl, helping an elderly woman carry her groceries, putting his toys away, going outside to make lots of noise, taking care of a sick sister, playing kindly with friends, always saying "hi" to strangers "when Mommy's nearby," bringing a neighbor some food, and gently petting a dog and a cat because the care of "God's entrusted to me and to you."

What I Like: Young children aren't necessarily kind or polite by nature; they need to be shown how to care for others. While watching their parents show kindness may be the best way for them to learn this, a book pointing out specific ways a young child can show kindness is a good idea, too. Hallinan's illustrations are, as always, bright and fun, and the text is written in catchy rhyme. It's difficult to write this kind of book without sounding preachy, but Hallinan mostly manages to avoid this by writing in first person, from the child's point of view: "I like to be kind; it's a nice thing to be. When I reach out to others, they reach out to me."

What I Dislike: Sometimes the text seems a bit forced and once or twice the rhythm is awkward or the rhyming isn't exact. In addition, toward the end, the author states that "God blesses kindness in so many ways, that the kindness I give out is always repaid." This may be true, but expecting someone to do a kindness back to you (as is implied by the accompanying illustration) is much too simplistic. Nevertheless, this may provide a great opportunity for parents to talk to their little ones about doing what's right in God's eyes just for the sake of obeying God.

Overall Rating: (On the lower end of) good.

Age Appeal: The publisher says infant to preschool, but toddlers and preschoolers are more likely to find interest in this title.

Wonderful book  Feb 6, 2006
My 20 month old daughter loves this book. She fills in the rhyming words. I love the positive messages in Hallinan's books. The "Let's be Polite" book is what helped me teach my daughter to say thank you, please, excuse me, and God bless you when she ought. I can only assume that this is going to help her begin to understand the need for and rewards of kindness. The "helpful" book has been a gem as well!
