Preview Empathy is My Superpower:
I read this book with my daughter. She is six, and she seemed to get the gist of the story line. We do talk about empathy in our home, but we don't always display it.
She liked the super hero in the story, especially her cape. Some of the situations were a little silly, but she got the point of the tale easily.
She really liked the part about the girl with dyslexia, as she has had trouble reading too.
Overall, a nice illustrative book for a young child.
Empathy is my Superpower is the perfect book to teach children how to empathize with others and see beyond themselves. I thought the art style was cute and the story itself really is easy to follow. I think children will love the idea of a superhero and how you can help people even if you don't exactly know what they are going through. This is a great story for parents and teachers to read aloud.
