Kindergarten may be scary for some 5-year-olds, but the kindness of strangers can go miles to calm your fears.

Ella Mitchell told her mom that she was really nervous about starting school – especially learning how to read. A stranger on the bus overheard their conversation and decided to write her an encouraging note. He left it with the mother and it read:

“When you practice letters enough, and the sounds they make, they’ll start to work together and make sense, and then you’ll be reading. When you can read, you’ll know what EVERYTHING says. All the signs, all the names, all the books, writing is EVERYWHERE if you look. Soon you’ll be able to read books, and everything there is to know is in them! You’ll be able to find out whatever you want! It probably won’t be easy, but it won’t be hard forever. It’s going to be so exciting! Good luck!”

Afterward, her mother told King-5 News that even though Ella doesn’t know how to read, she already has memorized the touching and encouraging note.
