Sooooo a long while ago a very cool kitty asked a young lad, "How would you like to be king.” The boy had nothing better to do, so he nodded. The adventure begins. The basic rule - when in doubt always trust the cat. Puss is one clever kitty. She is going to show us how to get from empty pockets to the royal throne room.

This was a great article written by Dr. Anne Paris. I love the ideas and tools she gives to use. I have all three of the Empathy Way books and can't wait to read them to my Grandkids so that they can become Caring Empathetic Children and later teens, which is so important, especially in this world we live in. I can't wait to see what Dr. Paris has for us next!
