Bibliotherapy Bookshelf:

Books to Help Young Children Cope
in Today's World

When young children are experiencing difficulties in their daily lives, reading about characters with similar problems can help them cope. Experienced therapists use children's books to solve emotional problems in a technique known as "Bibliotherapy."

The lists below include some of the titles owned by Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh that may be useful for caregivers, teachers, parents, and other concerned adults working with preschool children. The titles recommended are not intended to replace professional counseling but rather to help ease the concerns and fears of young children in today's world. Not every book is available at all locations, but any title can be requested.

Please ask the children's librarian for additional titles on any topic you are interested in as new books are always being published and added to the collection.
