Take Part In Empathy Day on June 9
We’re counting down to Empathy Day on June 9, celebrating how reading helps us all to understand other people better. The more we empathise with the great characters we read about, the more we understand how others think and feel. EmpathyLabUK will be hosting a full day of events including activities to get involved in, author talks and The Empathy Conversation with authors Cressida Cowell, Muhammad Khan and psychologist Professor Robin Banerjee. They have also produced a family toolkit, available now, with all sorts of activities for families to take part in at home.
Don’t forget to check out all our children’s books on Borrowbox with hundreds of great characters waiting to be discovered.
