Kind Heart is not so much an in-your-face anti-bullying book. It's more about how parents raise their children to be kind to all people, no matter the color of their skin, if they have a disability or if they're different from other kids. The main character has a birth defect, but he never lets this get in his way, and he constantly sticks up for the underdog or a classmate that is different from others.
