Picture Books & Resources
Conflicts, disagreements and tensions affect all children during their lifetime. As adults, we need to encourage conflict resolution through communication, compromise, harmony, collaboration and forgiveness. Picture books are perfect conversation starters and these books are no exception. They cover war, peace, understanding, sympathy and respect. Remember, conflict can bring up hostile or negative experiences so engage in sensitive discussions.
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!
