Three Nosy Crow Books Selected for 2022 Read for Empathy Collection

We’re absolutely delighted that The Girl Who Stole an Elephant by Nizrana Farook, The House on the Edge by Alex Cotter and How to be Me by Cath Howe have been featured in EmpathyLab‘s 2022 Read for Empathy Collection!

Founded in 2017, Empathy Day aims to drive a new empathy movement around the world – and each year the organisation publishes the Read for Empathy collection, made up of books that enhance empathy skills, with themes covering family dynamics, relationships, emotional intelligence amongst others. And we’re so pleased to see three of our books included!

This year, Empathy Day will take place on June 9th, with schools, libraries, young people’s organisations, publishers, and booksellers joining forces to emphasise the importance of empathy and the empathy-building power of books. By reading, we can learn to better understand each other and the world we live in.

The Girl Who Stole an Elephant features Chaya, a no-nonsense, outspoken hero, who leads her friends and a gorgeous elephant on a noisy, fraught, joyous adventure through the jungle where revolution is stirring and leeches lurk.

The House on the Edge is a great mystery with real heart, that follows Faith on her journey to find her brother and bring her father back before everything she cares about falls into the pitiless sea below.

How to Be Me is a beautiful, moving story of family, friendship and self-discovery that is filled with empathy and insight, and sensitively touches on issues including grief, anxiety, loneliness with great understanding and an incredible lightness of touch.
