An Educator's Guide to Empathy
I've talked about Brightly before. It is an amazing resource for parents, teachers, and anyone passionate about connecting kids with books. They have a new educator's guide about building empathy with books that is absolutely stellar. And all of the books featured are available from Hoover Public Library!
