A little bit of kindness and understanding can go a long way. So, to celebrate Empathy Day on 10 June, we've gathered together the best books that explore what it means to be compassionate towards others.
E. B. White (Author) E. B. White was born in New York in 1899 and died in 1985. He kept animals on his farm in Maine and some of these creatures crept into his books, such as STUART LITTLE which was recently made into a blockbusting film. He received many awards including the Laura Ingalls Wilder Medal in 1970, an award given every five years to authors who have 'made a substantial and lasting contribution to literature for children'. Garth Williams (Illustrator) Garth Williams was born in 1912 and became one of American's best-loved illustrators. His magical drawings have brought to life many memorable children's book characters, including Fern, Wilbur, and Charlotte in Charlotte's Web and the adventurous little mouse, Stuart Little. Garth Williams died in 1996, at the age of 84.
