As he performs his morning exercise, Winnie the Pooh sings to himself, "I am short, fat, and proud of that." Oh that we could all approach life with the same self-confidence as Winnie the Pooh. Pooh is just one character out of many in children's literature that can help us teach our kids about being confident, about liking themselves and being happy with who they are. As parents, one of our greatest wishes is that our children will grow up with confidence. Confidence to believe in themselves, to be true to who they are, to not care what others think of them, and to flourish in their passions and succeed in their pursuits. We want them to believe the can do anything they put their minds to. Confidence begets bravery, courage, self-worth, and boldness. Children's books provide an invaluable resource for helping children with confidence and self esteem. For one, reading aloud together with a young child can lead to expressions of love and encouragement from a parent to a child. These positive affirmations are critical for developing a sense of personal value and a positive self image. Additionally, as maturing readers start to understand characters and storylines, they can relate to and understand themes of self identity, feeling good about yourself, and believing in yourself. Our list includes books for a broad range of ages. We have board books for newborns and toddlers, picture books for toddlers and kids early elementary school age, and chapter books for elementary school and early middle school age kids. You can filter our list by book type (board, picture, or chapter) and use our table of contents to jump to particular areas of interest, like books about confidence and being yourself. These children's books are sure to inspire confidence in young readers with their positive messages and role models. Let us know what books you would add to the list.
