Kid’s Corner: 12 Books for Transitions

I recently returned to a full time job after being mostly home with my two young children. They are adjusting well, but it’s a big transition- I’m reminded of this every evening when I get tackled like an NFL quarterback upon returning home. What’s helped my kids deal with new situations more easily is finding stories that address the feelings and issues they’re facing. Here are some great titles for young kids who need reassurance or have separation anxiety as they’re facing a transition, whether it’s a parent going away or a starting a new school. Check out our parenting collection or search the website Little Parachutes to find good books for a variety of issues and situations. Also, come in and see our display of picture books to help kids deal with life’s challenges.
