This is the story of the power of our everyday kindnesses.
The book introduces a little girl who wears a leopard-print scarf (comes with the book) as a superhero cape in hopes to do something big to make the world a better place. What she doesn't realize is that she's already doing just that.
Every day, she is polite and kind. Her actions cause others to act the same way; to pay it forward creating a ripple-effect of kindness.
However, by the end of the week, she feels defeated. She thinks her scarf doesn't work and she's too small to make a difference.
Mom steps in and tells her she is the "biggest difference-maker of all" and asks her, "So now that you know that your powers are true…tell me sweet darling, what next will you do?"
