Using Picture Books to Promote Self-Esteem

Published on Friday, May 30, 2014

Welcome to new Northeast Library blog series, Your Friday Five! Each week, the children's and teen staff will round up five of their favorite resources and reads around a certain topic. This Friday, we are highlighting books on self-esteem. Self-esteem comes from the inside and it can't be directly taught, but it can be encouraged and fostered with positive words and picture books. Picture books on self-esteem topics can be a powerful tool in building self-esteem in young children. It's never to early to start building your child's self-esteem. Kids of all ages can use an added dose of self-confidence and a gentle reminder that our uniqueness is what makes us so special. Here are 5 of my favorite children's books that help promote self-esteem.
