The Whatifs

Ages: 4-8 years

I love characterizing emotional experiences and I just love how this book characterizes the “whatsifs” as these little creatures that thrive on Cora’s worries. I also love that this externalizes her worries rather than fusing them into her identity.

The Good Egg

Ages: 4-8 years

Being perfect can be so HARD! As the other eggs in the dozen behave badly, the good egg starts to crack from all the pressure of feeling like he has to be perfect. This is an adorable read on accepting our humanness and our imperfections, which we are not alone in. John’s entire series is adorable--you will find many of them on these lists!
