This month in my Community of Readers here at the Reading Scoop, we’re exploring all kinds of emotions. We’ve started with ways to build confidence with the books we’re reading.
For Younger Readers
This book is one of my new favorites. The message is clear with the quotes below. This book is the perfect book for building confidence when trying a new task. Whether that is riding a book like the bird in the story or playing a new instrument or playing a new sport. “Just focus on your dreams and go!”
This catchy tune will stay with you! /
Read this quote below! This catchy tune will get stuck in your head fast!
We all have a Whatif Monster in our lives. Miss Michelle, the author of this books even did, too! Her husband inspired her to write this book about the Whatif Monster we all have in our lives.
Instead of the bad whatifs in our lives, focus on the GREAT whatifs instead! This is a super cute story with a phenomenal message!
Books are an awesome vacation from the present and they can be a peek into our future. These books show how our mindset can change our world if we let it! From little children to adults, a great story can and will make a difference!
One more great story to build your confidence!
Cordelia believes she can fly… until she starts listening to the negative voices around her. Everyone can learn something from Cordelia, no matter the age. Cordelia learns to push past her fears despite what other people think.
Believing in yourself even though others around you may not is SUCH a hard concept for both children and adults. That’s why words of encouragement or words of affirmation are so vital to strengthening our self-concept.
These are three must-have books for building confidence! Put these on your next list of books!
