I passionately believe in the power of great stories, and especially picture books to help people of all ages understand their own emotions and to build empathy and understanding of others.
Below are some of my favourite titles, many of which have been highly recommended by teachers, teaching assistants and parents I know.
Some of the picture books could be in more than one category. I can also recommend more books around grief and loss should you need them.
All titles can be ordered from Readers that Care. Discounts available for schools.
Some of the titles are available to buy direct from my Readers that Care online shop.
I also have a separate section for Environmental picture books.
