Literature to encourage empathy

A guest post on ‘Media Specialists GuideIMG_1407‘ that has struck a chord for me is well worth the read.  It’s reference is to literature that could enable students to experience situations that may otherwise be unknown to them – and encourage feelings of empathy for people in challenging situations.  Wonder by R.J. Palacio certainly did that for me – it is ‘wonderful’!
