I'm Gonna Push Through! book

I'm Gonna Push Through!
Written by Jasmyn Wright & illustrated by Shannon Wright
What started as a mantra for inner-city third graders has become a global empowerment initiative. With the goal of teaching children to be their best selves and find their inner strength to overcome life’s adversities, I’m Gonna Push Through is sure to reassure and lift up readers. I think many of us could use a lesson in emotional resiliency at the moment and with its diverse characters and universal message of hope, this is a book that will resonate and encourage many.

After the Fall (How Humpty Dumpty Got Back Up Again)
Written & illustrated by Dan Santat
There are plenty of great lessons in this book including perseverance, overcoming adversity, and trying new things, but it never feels overly didactic. The important life lessons combined with incredible illustrations and a shocking ending makes this book a real standout.

When Sophie Thinks She Can't . . .
Written & illustrated by Molly Bang
While the overall message of this book is extremely positive, there is one scene that parents may find troubling. In the beginning of the book, Sophie is struggling to put together a puzzle when her sister walks up completing the puzzle quickly and insults Sophie's intelligence with some unkind words. Sophie's confidence plummets. While this scene is disappointing, the rest of the book demonstrates an important message on persevering through tasks and learning the concept of "yet". Parents may also choose to use the scene with Sophie and her sister as a discussion prompt to talk about how hurtful words and actions can be.
