Empathy Book List & Resources

Children learn from the actions of adults around them and teaching empathy is one of our most important responsibilities. They need a good understanding of empathy and open-mindedness to counteract negativity in the world. Make sure children in your care have opportunities to discuss the consequences of their actions. Help them imagine other people’s feelings during intolerant or difficult situations, supporting them to be reflective and open-minded. The picture books in the empathy book list are wonderful tools to promote empathy and compassion. Use them to start discussions on what it means to be caring, thoughtful and respectful to others.
