15 books all parents should read with their kids
This is a really cool concept for a book. It explains step by step what’s happening during mommy’s pregnancy. It’s designed to be read week by week as the pregnancy progresses, not all in one sitting. Great illustrations accompanying child friendly updates explaining what’s happening to mommy.
Such a heartfelt, touching book. The writers made this book about their son and it begins with bringing him home as a newborn all the way to him being all grown up and making his own way in this world. Wonderful illustrations and undeniably sweet rhyming text make this book really stand out.
This is a fantastic book for parents looking to teach a lesson all kids eventually learn... money doesn't grow on trees. This perfectly illustrates the process and the value of money in a fun way kids will understand.
This is a great book for kids that worry a lot. Such a smart concept and written beautifully in rhyme. About a boy with an imaginary pet dog that is always convincing him not to do things. Will the boy find his courage?
This book sensitively addresses the needs of quieter children and reminds readers how small acts of kindness can help other children to feel included. Such a good book to read with your child to help instill a sense of empathy and illustrate the value of kindness.
Mean Jean is the recess queen, and it isn’t until a new girl becomes her friend that recess dynamics change for the better. This book is ideal for addressing bullying that can be resolved without adult intervention.
This is a story of a little girl that is feeling some anxiety about going to school. So she figures out a way for her to deal with the negative thoughts and overcome her anxiety. I really think books like this are important to read to kids. Children need to know that it’s normal to have these feelings and having books like this around can be enormously comforting. Reading books like this to the little ones is the perfect opener to having some important conversations about communication and feelings. I’m very happy to include this book on my Children’s Bookshelf!
