    Perfect for toddler
    Purchased this book to help my child transition to kindergarten and found it great. Easy to understand.

    It a great bullying lesson
    Bought this for my son who is being bullied. Most of the book has great examples about empathy but it gets murky when it gets to the bullying example. In the book the bully learns his lesson through empathy which is great but not a safe lesson for a small child who is being bullied.

    It is wrong about the bullies
    This is a nice book, it defines empathy well and is a good starting point for talking about it with children. Everything is age appropriate. There are two bits I had slight issues with – it’s school orientated (lets have fun at school) – so if your child doesn’t go to school it makes it less appropriate, but more importantly, the mean bully is bullied himself and then immediately learns the error of his ways. That isn’t what happens eh? Usually kids who are mean are not doing it because they haven’t learnt to be kind, but rather because they have experienced meanness themselves, or have some need which isn’t met. And it’s a lot harder to change ways than stated. So the book itself ends up, ironically, lacking empathy for the bully, and also giving the message that bullies need to be bullied to teach them the error of their ways. It spoilt what is otherwise a useful book for me.

    Just what I wanted.
    Loved this book. It was just what I wanted to teach my granddaughter about empathy because it gives examples of the child viewing someone with a problem, identifying with a child by remembering a time that had happened to him, and then giving an example what to do to help. I also liked that it had questions at the bottom of some of the pages like: Have you ever felt scared? What happened? Tell me about a time you had to be brave, that made it more interactive.
