Books That Teach Empathy

Did you know that children begin learning empathy as early as 2 months old?  Social-emotional growth is just as important as any other area of development. As adults, it is critical that we encourage our children to be kind and compassionate towards others. I’ve pulled together a list of my favorite children’s books to help teach empathy:

With all that is going on in the world, there is nothing better to be than kind!
