Using Books to Help Build
a Child’s Coping Skills
Bobby’s Books is a program that uses books to help children and adults deal with difficult issues. Using children's literature as a springboard for conversations will give kids the chance to express their feelings and tell their own stories.
Seeking adventure in faraway places, Miss Rumphius fulfills her dream and then sets out to make the world more beautiful.
This book discusses the importance of knowing your life has a purpose and to understand the legacy associated with your life. We are all here for a reason, though often times, we are unsure of what that reason is. This book helps you realize it is the little things in life that define who you are.
The 20 books specifically chosen to be the core selection of Bobby's Books are amazing. The core selections offer a variety of themes, relationships and family dynamics to choose from in order to serve clients respectfully and within their comfort zone. Children and their adult caretakers are able to identify needs and process feelings through the characters in the story. Insight may increase in a nurturing atmosphere that fosters understanding, acceptance and growth.
