Kids books that celebrate individuality can help teach us that it is okay to be different! If you are looking for books to encourage kids to think for themselves, or stories that foster acceptance of others who may be unique, these are some of our favorites. It takes a lot of courage to stand out in a crowd, but as many of these books show, our new creative ideas can have the power change the world.
These books that celebrate individuality can spark many discussions such as:
- Would you rather be a trendsetter or a follower?
- How can you be accepting of someone who is different?
- Can words be hurtful? What can YOU do to fight bullying?
Here are some of our favorite kids books to celebrate individuality:
Mr. Tiger Goes Wild (ages 3-6)
What Do You Do With an Idea? (ages 3 and up)
Peanut Butter & Brains (ages 4-8)
AWESOME BOOK ALERT — Peanut Butter and Brains by @joemcgeeauthor is adorable and encourages kids to think for themselves. 💕📚 We made Joe McGee’s Ultimate Peanut Butter and Jelly sandwiches for lunch, read the book, and dressed up like zombies! No brains for dinner, though…. we moved on….to pizza! 🍕😊💕 Thanks to @letsplaybooks for sharing this gem w/ us & hosting a super fun book launch event. 💕💕💕#bestkidsbooks #bestkidsauthor #picoftheday #simplepleasures #happy #happiness #kidslit #booksforkids #momsofinstagram #itsakidslife #kidsactivities
Rufus the Writer (ages 4-8)
Awesome Book Alert!!! “Rufus the Writer” became an instant favorite with our teddy bear friends. A big thank you to our favorite book shop for the recommendation — @letsplaybooks 📚 The book tells the story of a boy who decides not to run a lemonade stand one Summer, but sets up a story stand instead. Reminded me so much of Clara’s “Poem Shop”! 💕 The book is like 4 stories in one — who & what inspires Rufus, along with his clever stories & illustrations. Will inspire many budding writers!! 😍 #picoftheday #readtoyourkids #bestkidsbooks #kidslit #simplepleasures #myview #momsofinstagram #kbnmoms #reading #summerreading
