Picture books that help teach respect and empathy

Ryan Respects    Spaghetti in a Hot Dog Bun: Having the Courage to Be Who You Are    What If Everybody Did That?   Oddrey    The Sandwich Swap

A teacher in my school asked for help finding books for her 4 year-old son that would help him understand empathy, learn respect and being sensitive to other people’s feelings. I gave her these 5 titles along with some others. She said they were great and helped a lot.

1. Ryan Respects  2. Spaghetti in a Hot Dog Bun  3. What if Everybody Did That?  4. Oddrey  5. The Sandwich Swap

I read these with my 6 year-old daughter as well and thought they helped promote conversation around empathy as well.
