    A Mile In My Shoes promotes empathy through reading. D25 has carefully selected 12 summer reading options that give students an opportunity to read about different perspectives and life experiences: a horrific storm that left a community and nation in shambles, bullying, illness, race relations, a terrorist attack, relocation, the foster care system, immigration and much more.
