Picture Books & Resources
It is important for children to grow up taking responsibility for their actions. It is our job as adults to help children be accountable for their actions and in their dealings with others. They should think about the consequences before they act or speak. Use these great picture books to reinforce the importance of taking responsibility and understanding actions have consequences. They focus on following rules, taking on new responsibilities and being accountable for their actions especially when they don’t make good choices.
