Stories to Inspire Resiliency

wemberly worried book coverGiraffe and Bird book coverGrumpy bird book cover





Inspire resiliency in children through books!  We read and tell stories to laugh, to wonder and to learn more about the world.  When our children experience disappointments or stressful situations, sharing excellent books is a great way to start a conversation.   The right book can ease a child's worries when a book character copes with similar challenges.  You can find books to inspire resiliency at your Library through the catalogue, or ask staff.  This is has an excellent online list and printable pdf here. The Middlesex London Health Unit's Inspire Resilience campaign invites families to submit their 100-500 word stories of overcoming adversity (illness, bullying, grief).  Find out more here.
