What is the secret to happiness?
For all creatures, humans and animals alike, the secret to happiness lies in the ability to have meaningful and positive relationships.
To have positive relationships, we need to develop empathy: the ability to put our point of view aside and try to see from the other person’s perspective. We develop empathy as children primarily through observing empathy in others.
This series of storybooks presents with each story an aspect of empathy. Empathy consists of a set of skills that build upon each other. Similarly, this series of stories will build upon each other with the final goal of introducing all aspects of empathy.
Felix The Lucky Duck, the first story in the Empathy Series, brings to light some of the habits that stand between us and the attainment of empathy, unconditional love, and true happiness. Fortunately, Felix is a lucky duck and will overcome all obstacles.
