On the heels of two mass shootings this weekend in the U.S., a slew of traumatizing immigration reform acts, and a lifetime of community violence in inner city neighborhoods, I’m left thinking, “where do we begin?” My friend and owner of Long Beach Littles reached out to me for information on how to teach kids empathy. Yes, empathy. That’s where we start. Below is an Instagram graphic I came up with on simple steps you an take to start today. I will also be linking all the books (click on affiliate link to purchase on amazon.com.

As I read more, I’ll keep adding to this list.
