Children's LiteratureGenerally if you can not empathize with or understand how another individuals feels then you really cannot develop a meaningful relationship or fit well into a societal structure. This collection of vignettes depicts children in a variety of situation and shows the emotions they are experiencing. They range from pleasure at scoring a goal in a soccer game, to loneliness being left out of a group and fear in this case of a of a large dog. The young boy who provides the continuity and focus tries to remember or think about how he would feel or react to a given situation. The closing pages of the book offer parents, caregivers and teachers guidance in using the book and for extended activities that focus on empathy games.
