Children's Mental Health Week
2021 Read for Empathy Collection
The 2021 Read for Empathy collection features 50 books for 4-16 year olds, with each book chosen to do a specific job in building young people’s empathy.
The primary collection is for 4-11 year olds and consists of 30 books; the secondary collection features 20 books for 12-16 year olds. They are a powerful mix of genres and 42% are from writers and illustrators of colour. The books will help expand children’s world view and understand others better.
Each collection comes with a free downloadable guide, giving information about the books, top tips, and explains what empathy is and how it works. The Guide is brought to you by EmpathyLab, in partnership with book supplier Peters who also have links to the collection that is available to buy from them here.
