5 Books to Add to your ‘littles’ Reading List
Here’s a carefully-curated collection of Penny’s favorite books for all your littles as they enter a new year with changes, growth and learning!
1. All Kinds of Brave
What is Brave? A book for all of the brave children and those who want to be brave. As your littles enter the new school year, they might need to be reminded of how brave they are and this is the perfect way.
Written & Illustrated by Kari Shields, Mary Weber and Julie Leiman Weaver
2. The Golden Rule
The Golden Rule. It’s not hard to remember, but what does it really mean? With its universal message and evocative illustrations, this timeless classic captures the importance and rewards of living by a rule that is simple to say, yet not always easy to follow.
Written & Illustrated by John Green, Ilene Cooper and Gabi Swiatkowska
3. What Do You Do with a Problem?
Especially one that follows you around and doesn’t seem to be going away? This is the story of a persistent problem and the child who isn’t so sure what to make of it. The longer the problem is avoided, the bigger it seems to get. But when the child finally musters up the courage to face it, the problem turns out to be something quite different than expected.
Written & Illustrated by Kobi Yamada and Mae Besom
4. The Storyteller’s Handbook
“Magic is something you create.” This is no ordinary storybook. It contains an infinite number of stories. And each time you open it, a new story is born. Each page, every detail, is a new adventure just waiting to be told. And the most magical thing of all is YOU are the storyteller here.
Created by Elise Hurst and Forward by Neil Gaiman
5. Because I Had a Teacher
Whether they’re an educator, a coach, or a mentor this book is for them. This book celebrates the worlds they open up for us and thanks them for the difference they make. Adding this book to your children’s reading list at the beginning of the year reminds them how to be mindful and thankful walking into the new year. At the end of the year, it can be a lovely gift.
Written & Illustrated by Kobi Yamada and Natalie Russell
