Using Books as an Empathy Resource

Using Books as an Empathy Resource | School Library | Scoop.it
You gave us empathy book recommendations. Now we're giving you the questions to ask children while reading them.

 

It is one thing to read a book. It is another thing to comprehend a book. It is quite another thing to understand its characters.

 

Researchers have found that people who read fiction develop empathy when they are emotionally transported into the story. This is a fantastic opportunity for parents, peers and educators to help children explore the complexity of characters’ actions and emotions. How we read books with children affects their perceptions of social interactions, feelings and events. So the more we help children explore the emotions and perspectives of story characters, the better we equip them with the real-world capacity to understand the actions and feelings of other people.
