The Best Books to Build Self-Confidence in Children

List: Posted: 08/08/11

Self-confidence is a trait that is very important for everyone, regardless of age.  While we might think of self-confidence issues as a problem only associated with only teenagers, the truth is that these personal issues can even affect small children.  Many children often feel inadequate compared to their peers, but there are books that they can read which will improve how they perceive themselves.

A great book for children in the 8 to 12 age range is "The Mouse, the Monster, and Me."  This book is about being yourself and learning to deal with both the meeker and more aggressive sides of yourself.  It is also one of the many books about finding your strengths and your rights, and learning how to handle criticism.

"Being Me: A Kid’s Guide to Boosting Self Confidence and Self Esteem" can be another excellent choice to get boost self-esteem.  This book takes a more direct approach than using a moral based story, but it offers factual help and advice that can be beneficial for kids.

"Well Done!" is great for toddlers.  It teaches the importance of doing things for yourself, while also teaching how to boost confidence through achievements.  It's based on encouraging the reader and making them realize they're special.

"Confidence Counts" and "Don’t Feed the Monster on Tuesdays" are both excellent books for that are fun and positive.  Their creativity will make your children want to read the books over and over, while helping them feel better about themselves. 

Encouraging your child, and talking to them about how they feel after each book, is essential for their growth and stability.  Take your child to the library each week, and encourage them to find books they like to continue reading on this subject.
