Picture books provide a wonderful opportunity for learning and exploring concepts, especially to help children learn about social skills and build on their character strengths. By using picture books in this way, it takes the direct pressure off your child and helps them to see things from other perspectives.
Here are my top books picks to help children explore emotions, social skills and friendships:
