Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-Grade 1-A cuddly bear cub is featured in these two purposeful stories. The lesson in When I Care is that children should treat others as they wish to be treated. The book includes some suggestions for promoting empathy. Scared describes situations in which children feel frightened and how comforting by another helps. It also mentions that being scared can protect them against injury-for example, being afraid of a strange growling dog or climbing too high. Each book begins with a note to adults about how to help children with their feelings. Colorful illustrations of the cub and his animal friends in many familiar situations at home and at school are placed on abundant white space, giving an open, uncluttered look to the pages. There are many stronger, more imaginative stories about these subjects, such as Dr. Seuss's Horton Hears a Who (Random, 1954) and Mercer Mayer's There's a Nightmare in My Closet (Turtleback, 1968). However, on some occasions teachers and caregivers might welcome the guidance given in this series.

From Booklist

Gr. K-2. This charming title in The Way I Feel series will help youngsters identify and understand the basic concepts and importance of receiving and offering help and emotional support. A little bear describes familiar situations, such as being hurt, sick, or feeling sad, and explains how he was helped or how he offered sympathy and kindness to someone else. The text is very simple, and the "treat others as you would like to be treated" concept is well conveyed--from playground teasing ("I don't like to be teased so I don't tease") to helping out. The cheerful, colorful art features a cute, expressive animal cast showing ageappropriate ways to express caring and kindness, including sharing one's bike and bringing feelbetter flowers. An introduction and an endnote, "Promoting Empathy," provide adults with suggestions for encouraging and engaging kids in positive interactions, selfexpression, and understanding. Shelle Rosenfeld

By Z Hayes HALL OF FAMETOP 100 REVIEWER on June 4, 2009
Format: Paperback
Therapist Cornelia Maude Spelman has written a wonderful series of books for children, teaching them how to cope with various emotions. In "When I Care About Others", the focus is on promoting empathy, as experienced by a young bear cub. Written as a story, the bear cub goes through various situations where he first shows he needs to be cared for, but then later cares for others too. There is a brief note to parents by the author at the beginning of the book that explains how it is important to emphasize to children the need to be caring. At the end of the book, there are tips for inculcating empathy in children. The illustrations are vibrant and colorful and help make the story real for children.Highly recommended series of books for toddlers and up!

I got to read today for my son's classroom for first graders and really wanted to have them understand empathy. Too many people nowadays aren't able to relate to others cause they're caught up in themselves or what they believe. This book was able to get that point across clearly to these little ones with really cute pictures they enjoyed and not too much vocabulary to sift through.

I brought this book for my 5 year-old son because he is learning about his feelings as well as other people feelings. I purchased When I feel Angry by the same author and my son knows the difference between feeling angry and reacting to his angry. This books help young children to care and respect others. My son now understand he is not the only person with with feelings. This is a must have for all parents of young children!!!

I bought this book to use during therapy for psychoeducation about feelings and emotions. It was a nice straightforward book, and inspired good therapeutic discussion. Highly recommended for therapy or general education about feelings for kids!

This was great for my daughter that has autism. She has issues with not always saying nice things. She lacks empathy. We were able to have a really nice discussion from the book. She was able to recognize some things that she does and that she doesn't want to do them anymore. It promoted in a very clear way that you should do unto others as you would have done to you. That all people have feelings.

I selected this book for my 2 year old, who sometimes hits her older sister. Through simple language you can reinforce what it means to be empathetic (rather than focusing on anger management). I also reinforce some of the language from the book when she has a time out and I think it gives her a better understanding of why she shouldn't hit (which is typically out of frustration). She learns that it is not acceptable behavior because it is hurtful, not just because Mommy and Daddy say so. This book covers many caring/hurtful emotions and acceptable behaviors that a young child can understand.
