When Emily asks her big sister what the word empathy means, she discovers an answer that will change how she looks at people. Empathy is the ability to notice what other people feel. As she goes through her day, Emily learns more about the people on the bus, in school, and at home, than she guessed possible. And she learns how much people appreciate it when their feelings and experiences are noticed. This experience changes the way Emily looks at people, and perhaps it changes the way she is perceived by others. Through the eyes of young child, the reader experiences how people appreciate the simple kindness of someone noticing how they feel. Stand in My Shoes shows kids how easy it is to develop empathy toward those around them. Empathy is the foundation for all social skills and personal relationships, which make our lives richer and more beautiful. 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.
