Behaviour Book List

Picture Books & Resources

"Every child senses, with all the horse sense that's in him, that any parent is angry inside when children misbehave and they dread more the anger that is rarely or never expressed openly, wondering how awful it might be."

Benjamin Spock

Most parents and teachers will have faced children with challenging behaviour. They know it is difficult for children to always understand why they behave the way they do and its effects. Use these books to engage in purposeful discussions on appropriate behaviour and good decision making. Some books promote good behaviour and focus on developing self-esteem. Others show examples of aggressive behaviour, anger and frustration. Sharing these books will reassure children we all have lapses in behaviour, but there are strategies to move beyond this.
