Review by Stacey

A Book About Empathy is a delightful children’s book that teaches little ones what empathy is and how they can be empathetic to others in different situations.

In the story, we meet a little girl called Maddie who is being taught about empathy by her teacher. The teacher gives the class different scenarios and asks them to put themselves in the other person’s shoes and see how they would be feeling.

The book is a great learning tool for youngsters learning about empathy, and being empathetic is a great asset to have, unfortunately not enough people in the world have it and by teaching our kids whilst they are young hopefully we can change that.

The book is illustrated perfectly and the images describe the situations that are mentioned. The book also contains advice for parents/guardians/teachers on helping children to understand empathy and to gain a vital life skill.
