Miss Pinkeltink’s Purse: Children’s Book Review
On December 4th, 2018 a book about homelessness and empathy released and it is a sweet story about a woman’s caring attitude and big purse that holds everything from a toilet plunger to roller skates.
As often as she keeps filling her purse, the pleasure is in giving all the stuff away to others she approaches and knowing she is spreading happiness. But, the town looked at Miss Pinkeltink and her purse as annoyances. That is until people’s awareness of her compasion allowed them to realize the kindness in her heart.
Then Zoey, a child, spots her sleeping out in the cold rain and knew she had to do something to help the old lady in town who has helped out so many.
Take a look as Anthonys reads the first few pages of this book:
Why is empathy important?
In this article, Empathy involves the ability to emotionally understand what another person is experiencing. Essentially, it is putting yourself in someone else’s position and feeling what they must be feeling.
In this social skill, starting to teach empathy in young children is a great way to teach them to sympathize and have better insight on someone else’s feelings. In this book, children and adults see an ‘annoying’ homeless women, but because of one child’s ability to recognize her suffering she pulls the town together in a big way for Miss Pinkeltink.
