"Dr. Paris' authentic look at empathy will undoubtedly help even our youngest learners understand how it looks, sounds, and feels. The teacher's guide is brilliantly written and the lesson plan ideas require very little prep. My favorite part has to be the Empathy Buddy Badge that a child can earn to show that he or she has mastered the concept of empathy and is now proudly practicing it ... to get better."
Barbara Gruener, Counselor and Character Coach
"This trio of books on empathy has hit on the characteristic so needed in society, targeted for an
age group–young children–who can make the most difference for us all. Teaching empathy to youngsters BEFORE they become bullies is critical. But bullies need to understand why they behave the way they do too. You Scared Me! does that, in a way that doesn't scorn and uses images of bonobos that children will naturally adore. Kudos! For those with children or who teach children, this collection is a great tool for shaping healthy attitudes, respect for each other and ourselves, and delight in discovering our differences."

What People are Saying about
the Empathy Way Books...
"I LOVE the real-life connections and that the skills taught go beyond the curriculum. I decided to link the first few lessons to our reading unit. We've been reading the books in a series and focusing on character development- really great fit for us to talk about putting ourselves in our character's shoes!"
