Using Books to Help Build
a Child’s Coping Skills
Bobby’s Books is a program that uses books to help children and adults deal with difficult issues. Using children's literature as a springboard for conversations will give kids the chance to express their feelings and tell their own stories.
A Porcupine Named Fluffy
A porcupine named Fluffy is happier with his name after he meets a similarly misnamed rhinoceros.
This book discusses the feelings of self-esteem and coping. Being different isn't bad, it's just different. If your child is the first one to lose his/her teeth in the class, they are the first one to get glasses, etc. Teasing can have a dramatic effect on a child and the development of self worth. You can help your child embrace what make them unique instead of trying to "fit in."

I am a better Mom today because of this program.
