When Emily asks her big sister what the word empathy means, Emily has no idea that knowing the answer will change how she looks at people. But does it really matter to others if Emily notices how they're feeling? Stand in My Shoes shows kids how easy it is to develop empathy toward those around them. Empathy is the ability to notice what other people feel. Empathy leads to the social skills and personal relationships which make our lives rich and beautiful, and it is something we can help our children learn. This book teaches young children the value of noticing how other people feel. We're hoping that many parents read it along with their children.

Stand in My Shoes should be on the bookshelf in your home or school. We have an empathy deficit in our society, and this is one lovely step toward making the world a bit more compassionate.
The Love and Logic Institute has hit a home run when publishing Stand in My Shoes: Kids Learning About Empathy. As a former third grade teacher, who worked with our school’s character education program, this book is absolutely what all children need to read or have read to them. Empathy or rather the lack of it is a major problem in our society today. If this concept can be understood by our children from early on, it could have a major impact on families and schools. THANK YOU, Bob Sornson for your insight into writing this book for our children. This is a beautiful book, from the story to the illustrations. I highly recommend it for all families and schools.
