Abstract
Empathy is important in social adjustment, and teachers can assist in its development in children. This paper suggests a rationale for encouraging the use of empathy related literature and provides teachers with a children's literature resource of realistic picture books whose stories evoke feelings of empathy. The books listed in this paper were selected because they realistically deal with emphatic elements which will appeal to children ages 4-8.
