Chrysanthemum

When someone is being picked on and it seems nothing can take that hurt away, there's always someone who is willing to cheer for the underdog. In Chrysanthemum ($7) by Kevin Henkes, the wee mouse finds pride in her name thanks to her teacher.

 

Freckleface Strawberry

There's something every child doesn't like about themselves. Freckleface Strawberry ($12) shows that it's what's on the inside that matters more than the outside.  

 

The Homerun Cookie

Parents can sometimes unknowingly give their child a crutch — a security blanket, a mommy-scented shirt for nap time, or a dolly in the arms. When baby needs to break away from that dependency, it can be tough. The Homerun Cookie ($28) shows how it can be done. Additionally, parents or grandparents can customize it with a name, hair color and style, skin tone, and a personal note of dedication. It's sure to be a hit!  

 

Little Chick

Wee ones can get frustrated when things aren't easily accomplished. With a few words of encouragement, Little Chick ($14) realizes that it may not be all about the end result as much as his efforts toward reaching his goals.  

 

Llama Llama Misses Mama

At some point in their young lives, wee ones can get attached to their mama. If mommy has a lil love bug who has a tough time leaving her side, she should consider reading Llama Llama Misses Mama ($12). The sweet text shows babes that it's OK to let go and be independent because mommy is always going to come back. 

 

 

Purplicious

When everyone else seems to be marching along to the same beat and your tot hears a different drummer, she will identify with Pinkalicious in Purplicious ($12).  

 

Spoon

When a child feels too normal or unexciting, a quick read of Spoon ($11) will have them giggling and smiling from ear to ear. Spoon craves the exciting lives of fork, knife, and chopsticks, but comes to realize he is special in his own way.  

 

Tacky the Penguin

Sometimes individuals who act differently are ostracized or made fun of, but often their unique qualities can be sources of pride. Tacky the Penguin ($10) shows that the pros of being the odd bird outweigh the cons.
