Teaching Empathy

Just before the holidays I finished the illustrations for a children's book about empathy.  Even while the project was in process, I found the book to be a great teaching tool with the boys.  Who couldn't use some help in the area of putting yourself in someone else's shoes?

It's available through Amazon {here}.  And through Love and Logic {here}.  I'm still waiting on my copies.  I can't wait to see it in print.


  1. This looks like a great book for me to share with my grandkids! I'm so proud of you, Shelley, and I brag you up any chance I get! I'm unashamed to do so! So glad you have allowed God to bless the gifts He has given you. You are in inspiration ... truly.

    1. Thank you, Aunt Carol! You're always such a great encourager!

  2. Hi Shelley,
    I'm Edwin Rutsch, director of the Center for Building a Culture of Empathy. I've been interviewing top researchers, scientists, educators, artists, etc. via Google Hangouts about their insights and experiences with empathy/compassion.

    I'd like to see if I could line up an interview with you and Bob about your book.. If so, let me know a good time and date. Your interview can contribute to fostering a global dialog about the importance of empathy and compassion in the world.

    For more about the interviews see.
    Also see our website home page for other interviews.

    my email is here.

    1. Hi Edwin,

      I appreciate your interest in an interview to discuss the book. I will contact you via email.

  3. Shelly, you are my hero. Shine on sweet friend.



Thanks for joining the conversation!
