The Empathy Way is a book collection that strives to help children develop healthy and enjoyable relationships.
Although there are many ways to ‘be with’ others, we feel that the empathy way is the best. New research shows that we are at our best when we feel understood. Fostering empathy with, and in, our children will have many positive effects:
1. Empathy calms and strengthens
2. Empathy activates the brain so we are ready to learn, engage, and create
3. When empathy is developed at an early age, later troubling behaviors like bullying, rejecting others, depression, and even suicide, can be prevented.
The collection features stunning photographs of a community of bonobo apes who live at the Jacksonville Zoo and Gardens in Florida.
Kids connect with the adorable bonobo children (“The Empathy Way Gang”) and will resonate with the emotional connections between them. Demonstrating an ability to live peacefully among each other and resolve conflicts quickly, bonobos are great ambassadors for empathy.
They are our closest genetic relative and share many of our traits like compassion, love, and empathy. Looking into their eyes, we see who we are, and what we can become.
