Give your child or students the empathy advantage: Studies show that kids with greater empathy perform better academically, have greater resilience, don't cheat, and don't bully. Yet many lack this human skill. Hailed as "an absolute must-read" and a book that "will change your kidsí lives," UnSelfie by Dr. Michele Borba outlines a practical nine-step empathy-building program with tips for parents and educators guiding kids from birth through college. Copies available for checkout beginning in December; ask at the Youth Desk.Vernon Area Public Library District
