Six Children’s Books on Diversity and Acceptance of Self and Others

by donnak on November 15, 2015

Friendship circleDo you have a child or student who feels different from his/her friends and schoolmates? Is self-esteem becoming a problem? Whether the “difference” is real or imagined, the experience is painful.

The six books listed here at are an excellent resource to help children understand the hurt caused by teasing or shunning another because of a physical difference, a personality difference, or a disability.

Sometimes children are excluded because of their clothes, their accent, their personal interests and things way out of their control like a sibling with a disability.

These six books, reviewed here by Lorna d’Entremont, of Special Needs Book Review, are an excellent resource of inclusion, diversity and acceptance.

Lorna also posted a review of Finding Matthew, which you can read here.
