A new collection of primary and secondary texts which support the development of empathy is announced.

On 22nd January, EmpathyLab announced the 50 books that would make up the 2020 Read for Empathy collection. With 33 books for primary and 17 for secondary these are some of the best examples of books that help support the development of children’s empathy. There is a wonderful variety, with a broad range of emotions, situations and experiences being explored.
