October was a big month for the Coalition for Human Kindness. We gathered our books and audiobooks together under one streaming umbrella to help you enjoy and pass along the BE KIND message, we're giving a free Be Kind Club morning cup of kindness mug to all Coalition Kindolgists, old and new, to help you start your day with a smile, and the Williamson County Library added our books to their collection helping to spread the legend of Nadalada and the Nothing Heads just a wee bit further than the deer snoozing under my old maple.
