Best Kids Books about Courage
Below are great kids books about courage. Kids learn character lessons best by example, and books are great for providing just that! There
are so many different situations
that require courage in every day life. Beyond situations
presenting physical danger, children need to learn courage in social situations -- courage
to stand up for those being mistreated, courage to stand up for
what is right in the face of peer pressure, etc...
Great children's books explore these different types of courage in powerful ways that will stick with children for a long time. As with all
character education topics, these children's books are great
place to start the discussion (as opposed to lectures) since children often learn best by example.
