Two Nosy Crow books featured in the 2021 Read for Empathy Collection

We’re absolutely delighted that Talking to the Moon, by S.E. Durrant, and The Suitcase, by Chris Naylor-Ballesteros, have been featured in EmpathyLab‘s 2021 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 two of our books included!

This year, Empathy Day will take place on June 10th, 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.

Talking to the Moon, selected for this year’s Read for Empathy collection, is a beautifully written story of family, mental health, and memory. This moving book is a brilliant selection for the guide – and a great empathy-building read.

The Suitcase, also selected for the collection, is a simple yet powerful story about kindness,  understanding and friendship, written in response to the refugee crisis. We’re thrilled to see this wonderful picture book included in the collection, too!
