The Same Inside
By Liz Brownlee, Roger Stevens and Matt Goodfellow ISBN-13 : 978-1509854509
A strong foundation of empathy is integral to developing a sustained ethos of social action. This collection of poems supports young people in building empathy, understanding and affirming positive ways of relating to ourselves and others.
One of our favourite poems in the book is ‘Choose’ by Matt Goodfellow. The can be used alongside our Better Words activity which allows children to think about the words they can choose to use to make a positive difference in the world. At the same time they can reflect on the damage negative words can cause and help them to understand the importance of choosing words that build not harm.
