Self Esteem Resources for Preschool/Kindergarten

Posted 10/23/20 by Patti L

Children feel good about themselves when they learn to do things, develop confidence and take risks. These books will help spark conversations about your child’s unique talents and inspire them to try new things. Making mistakes and trying again is also an important part of social-emotional development for young children.

A Library card number and PIN will be required to access many of the resources listed. Need help with your card or PIN? Contact your nearest location or call 419.259.5200. Need a new card?
