Tuesday 9th June was Empathy Day. It was founded in 2017. Empathy is a vital as it allows us to appreciate and acknowledge the feelings and views of others. Empathy is a skill that you can learn and so, Empathy Day aims to help everyone understand and experience its power.

The day focuses on using books to step into someone else's shoes. Scientists say that we can train our brain with stories — the more you empathise with characters, the more you understand other people's feelings.

The Empathy Day resources are available at:
https://www.empathylab.uk/empathy-day

Please check the suitability of resources before sharing as the resources are aimed at all age groups.

Challenge: Read and a story today with your child and discuss how the characters feel and how their feelings influence their behaviour.

Today I read The Foolish King and the Wisdom Trees by Gill Lewis in the Empathy Shorts section of the Website.
