Nobody Hugs a Cactus

Carter Goodrich, shows that sometimes, even the prickliest people—or the crankiest cacti—need a little love.” Love this story! It helps kids understand how one’s own behaviors can bring them either closer or farther from others. It also explores what happens when we isolate ourselves and the feelings of loneliness that can come up. This book is also great for teaching kids to open up their minds to other perspectives and be more flexible in their thinking.

My Very Favorite Book in the Whole Wide World

Ages: 4-9 years

This is a cute story for any kids out there who don’t naturally love reading or are just learning to read (reluctantly). I think we can use this for kids that are reluctant to participate in other activities as well! This portrays the gift of determination--Henley had to keep searching until he found a book that really speaks to him.

The Little Tree

Ages: 5-8 years

This is a beautiful book portraying the changes and transformations that are a part of life--as hard as some of them may be. In this story a young tree does not want to let go of his leaves as the seasons change, even though the trees around him are doing so. I swear this book is just as relevant for adults and parents (it is so hard to watch our own kids grow up and for us to let go!)
