Choose Love forms part of this year’s Read for Empathy Collections from Empathy Lab

Graffeg are proud to announce Nicola Davies and Petr Horáček’s poetry collection Choose Love 

has been chosen to form part of this year’s Read for Empathy

collection, run by Empathy Lab.

The collection features 65 books for 4-16 year olds, each chosen to empower an empathy-educated generation. Many of the books help readers understand

the lives of those experiencing tough situations, like becoming homeless, or a refugee. Others help children build their understanding of emotions or inspire positive action towards the climate or animals or people in their community. 

Forming part of this important collection, Choose Love

is a cycle of poems that highlights the experience of those forced to become refugees.
