Books Can Help Your Child Understand Emotional and Learning Challenges

Parents are always looking for as many resources as possible to help their kids cope with emotional, behavioral and learning challenges.

One such resource that can be very valuable is books.

The Child Mind Institute has compiled a list of 44 books that address mental health and learning disorders and other common challenges kids face, such as dealing with painful experiences and coping with strong emotions.

Included are books for kids up to age 12 — from picture books to be read with preschoolers to chapter books for independent reading by older children. Child Mind Institute clinicians read them all and picked the best in each category, based on how helpful they found them.

For titles and descriptions of these books, see this article.
