Review: The Power of Empathy by Ruth Maille


Genre: Children's 4-8
Pages: 36
Published: October 19, 2022

Empathy can prevent bullying, help kids make friends and regulate emotions.

Don't miss spending time with Orbit and his friends on their fourth adventure of The Power of... children's picture book series.

This beautifully illustrated story gently teaches young children how to recognize their emotions - and the emotions of others. Children learn what it means to practice empathy by witnessing real-life examples that are easy for them to understand.

Written with easily understandable language, and perfect for adults to read aloud, this book enables children to see themselves in the examples that Orbit shares with his friends.

I received a copy of this book through Netgalley. This is my honest review. 

This children's book is designed to teach kids not only that they should care about other people, but shows them ways to do that and ways that they probably already do. This is a message that I think many adults have forgotten, or maybe they just never knew because they didn't have this book. 

The language is pretty simple, making it easy for children to understand. A budding reader may even be able to work through this book with a little assistance. 

The illustrations were bright and colorful and made me think of super heroes, which I'm pretty sure was the goal, so they definitely succeeded on that front for me. I just wish I knew why the Earth has bandaids on his head. 

Overall I give this book 4.2 out of 5 stars. - Katie
