Determination Book List & Resources

Determination is the ability to push through challenges. It also means giving things another go if previous attempts end in failure. The key to determination is motivation, positivity and the courage to see things through to completion. Adults can support this important attitude in children by being good role models. If you make a mistake show how you keep going despite the difficulties. The recommended picture books in the determination book list below illustrate how hard work and determination can overcome obstacles in life.

Giving children their own responsibilities will help them learn this important character trait. Also, if they fail or struggle while attempting a task encourage them to keep going. Fostering an attitude of not giving up, resilience and determination help children to develop independence.
