Can I Tell You About Compassion?

Jessica Kingsley Publishers

Like most kids his age, Sam loves sports. His class has arranged a special football match to raise money for a charity that helps children who are suffering. Sam finds out more about how the money is spent and asks his mum for this week’s pocket money early, so he can donate to the charity. His mum says he does this because he’s such a kind boy. But when he asks his teachers about it at school the next day, they say it’s because he’s compassionate.

Sam now has lots of questions about what this means. What is compassion? How can we become more compassionate? And what effects – both good and bad – does being compassionate have? Join Sam as he learns answers to these, and many more, questions about this important part of character education.
