Children's books often tackle delicate but important issues. Because of its intended audience, children's literature is focused, understandable, and relatable. Problems and matters can be addressed in third person stories, and abstract concepts are shared in memorable stories. For these reasons, children's books can prove especially helpful in teaching kids (and adults) helpful techniques for resolving conflicts, whether at home, at school, in the workplace, and more. This list compiles the best books in children's literature for showing and teaching conflict resolution. The types of stories vary. Some address conflict resolution directly, while others simply show characters resolving misunderstandings, mistakes, and other problems to again establish peace in relationships and environments. Our list includes board books, picture books, and chapter books. Board books are best for young readers ages zero to two. Picture books are great for kids early elementary school age, while chapter books are great for elementary school and early middle school age readers. You can filter the list by book type or browse the full list. Let us know what titles you would add to the list!
