Patience Book List & Resources
We all know young children struggle with patience! The picture books in the patience book list below illustrate restraint, persistence, endurance and how things are worth waiting for. Teachers will especially see in their classroom that some children are naturally more patient than others. We also see this with the adults we surround ourselves with.
You can help children become more patient with a few different strategies. Put them in situations where they have to take turns or wait for something. Remember, they will learn from your behaviour. If you show impatience your child will most likely demonstrate this too. Also, remember to praise them for any patient behaviour.
