Picture Books for Kids to Manage their Emotions and Behavior

I recently found picture books that teach character building. I wish that books like these existed when I was growing up. Children need guidance and support from their parents or guardians, from their teachers, and from media. Media would range from books and television to game apps. Anything that they are exposed to that informs them, whether they realize it or not, can be media. This is why it is so important to have the right information available for kids right at their fingertips. Many classrooms, homes and libraries now have books that cater to the socio-emotional needs of a child and it gives me hope that they can lead to great conversations about mindset and self control for children who read them. Topics like managing negative emotions and communicating them in the right way are found in the books below. Each book teaches a different value and they are simplified for young children to understand and I love the way that the books are books are illustrated for kids to want to read them. They are available on Amazon. As an Amazon affiliate, I may earn a commission for purchases using my links. Learn more.
