Picture Books & Resources
As adults, we want children to show sensitivity and kindness to the feelings of others. We can encourage children in our care to help those in need, be concerned at others unhappiness and understand how our actions affect people. Parents and teachers should model caring behaviour by helping people in need, being sensitive to the feelings of others and using respectful words. Reinforce a caring attitude by reading the books below that promote sensitive behaviour.
These resources relate to the book, author and illustrator. The number of resources varies subject to subject. Please check they are appropriate for your specific needs before using them with children. If you have any suggestions please get in touch!
