EMPATHY IS MY SUPERPOWER
A Story about Showing You Care
By Bryan Smith. Illustrated by Lisa M. Griffin. Amelia can’t quite get why some people behave the way they do. Why does her brother cry when it’s dark? Why does her classmate Kayla take so long to read anything? And what’s up with that strange-smelling dish that Priya brings to lunch every day? Find out what happens when Amelia, guided by her parents, learns the meaning of empathy and uses her newfound knowledge to become Super E—the caped crusader determined to show compassion to anyone and everyone in need! She soon discovers how empathy can make others, and herself, feel happier, kinder, and more caring. Includes helpful tips for parents and educators. Grades K–6. Boys Town Press. 31 pages. ©2018.
