Books That Teach Empathy




 

 

I am thankful to the bloggers who contributed to this list of books that teach empathy. You can see their suggestions of activities, songs, videos and more over at Make A Difference Mondays. I will continue to add books to this list based on your suggestions in the comments below. Please let me know if I am missing a great book that teaches this important character trait! Remember to check your local library to see if they carry these books. If they don't, be sure to suggest a title for them to purchase!

 

Empathy is the capacity to recognize and share feelings that are being experienced by another sentient or semi-sentient being. Someone may need to have a certain amount of empathy before they are able to feel compassion.
