Review quote

I ve long recommended the Roots of Empathy program in my own work with parents, children, and educators, which, like Mary Gordon 's program, is focused on teaching children how to do the right thing. "Roots of Empathy" is an essential book for every one of us invested in cultivating greater empathy in children whether at home or in the classroom.
