Empathy picture books


I passionately believe in the power of great picture book stories to help children, young people and adults, understand themselves and others. In these uncertain times they can also be great in helping children explore their own feelings, and help us to look for positives and inspire hope.  Many more books are also available please get in touch if you don’t see quite what you need. 


For books that fit in large letter  postage to Mainland UK is free. For other books there is a flat per parcel charge of £2.50
