The Empathy Book Club focuses on books which enhance students' empathy skills, such as kindness, compassion, perspective taking, and relating to others' emotions. This set of books focuses on kindness and compassion, and offers options for different grade levels. Use the following questions to guide students through a discussion around the recommended titles.
