Finding resourceful books for kids that are bright, colourful and keep them interested is not an easy task. Particularly when they are touching on sensitive topics.
Empowering resources recently sent me a set of their children’s book and I will say, I’m impressed. They cover a range of topics that can often be difficult to approach, however should the need arise, these books help break the ice and open up discussion.
Resourceful books for parents and teachers
Topics like being different, sadness, making friends and inappropriate touching are conversations no parent ever wants to have with their child. Unfortunately sometimes it is unavoidable and parents need some help with how to gently approach the subject and encourage their child to share. These books are a great resource to get you started.
You’re Different Jemima – written by Jedidah Morely
It is heartbreaking for parents seeing their child feel negatively about being different. You know the struggle they are fighting and wish you could take away their doubts.
You’re Different Jemima is a book written to make children feel special about what makes them ‘different’.
A Secret Safe To Tell – written by Naomi Hunter
Regardless what age you are, body safety is a conversation that should be openly discussed. Children often don’t realise that they should speak up and alert their parents, teachers, and/or caregivers to this kind of inappropriate behaviour.
A Secret Safe To Tell is a gentle book that encourages meaningful conversations about body safety, the importance of not keeping secrets and confiding in trusted adults if something is making you uncomfortable.
Just Like Molly – written by Pippa Dowling
Making friends doesn’t come as easy for some children as it does for others. This can be a result of them being shy, anxious or just not confident in approaching new people.
Just Like Molly is a beautifully written book by an incredible 13 year old that reassures kids that there is a friend out there perfect for them. A gentle story of friendship and having the courage to make new friends.
Even Mummy Cries – written by Naomi Hunter
Just because you are an adult, doesn’t mean you no longer get sad, stressed or emotional. This book helps children to understand that they are not to blame for any sadness experienced by their parents and encourages parents to openly express their sadness with their kids without feeling guilt or shame.
Running From The Tiger written by Aleesah Darlison
This book is written for those in the later years of primary school / early high school and connects with kids on a deeper level through understanding. Running from the Tiger is a tale of trust, friendship and the power that can be found once we stop running.
Children will face challenges throughout their life and resourceful books like these help them to understand and assist parents in navigating difficult conversations. The kid’s books from Empowering Resources will allow them to feel empowered, to stand up tall and use their voice to express what is important to them. It would be great to see these books introduced in public schools and libraries across Australia.
