Books for Kids
Children's storybooks can be powerful tools to promote thinking skills that support children's resilience. RIRO's Jennifer Pearson has created several lists of children's storybooks that illustrate resilient thinking and coping in action and promote cultural competence. Each book is annotated and categorized by the resiliency abilities it supports.
