Some of life's most tender lessons can be shared best through simple children's stories. Children's literature is full of inspiring tales of giving, of being nice to others, and of doing the right thing, even when it's not easy. Here in this list we've gathered the best kids books about helping others. The messages in the books on this list can be helpful for kids (and adults!) of all ages, whether it's a board book for a young child that shares a lesson about using kind words, a picture book with a message about kindness for middle school age kids, or a chapter book a family reads together about not judging. Children's books have a unique ability to present these powerful lessons about helping others through encouraging, memorable, and inspiring stories. There are three types of book on the list: board books, picture books, and chapter books. You can filter the list by type or browse the full list. You can also use the table of contents to jump to specific ideas, like helping others and friendship or helping others and sharing. We hope this list is a helpful resource for parents, teachers, and others teaching kids about helping others. Let us know what books you would add to the list!
