Whether it’s at home, daycare, school or the playground, young kids benefit from guidance on how to get along with others and deal with their own feelings. Reading stories about developing social skills can be a great way to learn. Here are a few picture books with braille that are fun to read.
No more hitting for little hamster!
By Bernette Ford ; illustrated by Sam Williams.
Little Hamster's very upset! None of his friends will let him join in any of their games. That's because when Little Hamster gets mad, he hits hard, and that hurts. Will he learn how to play nicely?
The sandwich swap
By Her Majesty Queen Rania Al Abdullah with Kelly DiPucchio ; illustrated by Tricia Tusa.
Lily and Salma are best friends. But who would have ever thought that ordinary peanut butter or plain old hummus could come between them? Based on a true story.
Give Maggie a chance
By Frieda Wishinsky ; illustrated by Dean Griffiths.
Maggie keeps freezing up whenever she has to read in front of the class. She wishes herself away on Mars, and wishes Kimberly, who always volunteers to read and makes fun of Maggie, would get dumped into a dungeon by a troll. Finally, a stuttering friend helps Maggie face her fear.
Noni says no
By Heather Hartt-Sussman ; illustrated by Geneviève Côté.
Noni can't say "no" to her friend, even when it means she has to hand over a precious toy, or when it means agreeing to a hideous haircut, or even giving up her bed at a sleepover. But when Noni finally finds her voice, the consequences are not what she expects.
