Whenever we have something new at meal time my children give me that look of, "I'm not going to eat that." Often, we will first read Dr. Seuss's famous book, "Green Eggs and Ham." This always puts a little giggle in my boys as they think that perhaps this new food might just be their favorite and something that they want to eat "in a box," and "with a fox." Children's stories seem to have this enabling affect on us in which we think, "I can do that." Suddenly trying your best is a fun challenge and not a chore. We've compiled this list of the best kids books about trying new things. Let's take a look at what this list of books can teach us and our children! If you're looking for new books about trying something new—be it to teach your little one about how to have persistence, making a difference, making it through a change, or overcoming fear—this list of kids books is for you. For the youngest readers, around 0-2 years old, we have board books, which are basically short stories. Picture books are great for all ages, but particularly geared for ages 2-6, which means you can find the perfect preschool theme in one of them. The chapter books on the list are recommended for ages 7-10. Trying new things can be scary, intimidating, exciting, fun, or all of the above! Whether your child is confident in stepping out of their comfort zone to try something new or not, these children's books will inspire and help little ones through the many different adventures or challenges they may come across. Your little one is sure to connect with some of the characters or stories on the list. Also, learn how trying new things can help us discover new talents, have fun, and be proud of ourselves!
