Reading for empathy

Children’s books to build understanding


The 29 beautiful books presented in this brochure, all in their own unique way, have the capacity to teach young readers to see the world through someone else’s eyes and, more importantly, to understand them. 
The recognizable and round shapes that I drew for the cover, as well as the tactile paper and the warm color scheme on the interior, reinforce the central theme: empathy. The soft color hues emphasize the age group classification.
You can download the brochure on the website of the Dutch Foundation for Literature.
