We are a new group developed by Miranda McKearney OBE. We believe passionately in the power of stories to help children develop their empathy skills. We have been working with 11 schools across the country to test our ideas and techniques which help teachers to use books to engage children's emotions and help children see through the eyes of those whose lives are very different to their own. We believe that empathy has never been more needed in a world where hate crime and intolerance are on the rise. Katie Atherton is running the Bath Half Marathon on behalf of EmpathyLab - to raise funds to create some high quality tools to help children engage with books and to support authors work with schools.
