Today is Empathy Day.
Basically, it’s about how reading helps you become more empathic. It’s something I never stopped to consider, much. But it’s obvious, really.
Reading broadens the mind, in so many ways. If you don’t read much – or at all – it will be a lot harder to develop empathy with and for others.
Empathylab.uk has information you can use, and also this rather lovely illustration by Chris Riddell to inspire you.
Read stories. Build empathy. Make a better world.
