Children Can Develop Empathy...

Stand in My Shoes
: Kids Learning about Empathy

by Bob Sornson (2013, Love & Logic, 10.95)

When Emily asks her big sister what the word empathy means, Emily has no idea that knowing the answer will change how she looks at people. But does it really matter to others if Emily notices how theyre feeling? This book shows kids how easy it is to develop empathy toward those around them. Empathy is the ability to notice what other people feel. Empathy leads to the social skills and personal relationships which make our lives rich and beautiful, and it is something we can help our children learn. This book teaches young children the value of noticing how other people feel. Color. Grades PreK-3. [9” x 9”...32 pages]

Gas Happens!
: What to Do When It Happens to You

by Julia Cook (2015, Boys Town Press, 10.95)

As educators and parents, we've all been there. Gas is passed and a variety of snickers, giggles, and negative comments ensue. But did you know that everyone and every living thing passes gas (except jelly fish and coral sponges)? If it's so natural, and so common, why do we struggle with teaching children how to respond appropriately when it happens? Join Gus as he and his classmates learn the brief biology lesson behind why we all pass gas, and the right way to handle it when it happens in public. Color. Grades PreK-3. [9” x 9”...32 pages]

Understand and Care

by Cheri Meiners (2003, Free Spirit, 10.95)

Empathy—a sincere, personal understanding of how another person feels—is essential to healthy relationships. This book builds empathy in children. In child-friendly words and supporting illustrations, it helps them to understand that other people have feelings like theirs—and different from theirs. It guides them to show they care by listening to others and respecting their feelings. Color. Grades PreK-3. [9” x 9”...36 pages]
