The best children's books have a way of confronting big issues and big emotions with fearless delight, their instinct to thrill but also, ultimately, to reassure.
We bluestockings believe there's a book to soothe every situation and mood, which makes this "A-Z of books to keep kids happy, healthy and wise" the perfect resource for grown-ups finding books for their budding bookworms! Organized alphabetically by “what ails you,” this reading guide is packed with hundreds of book recommendations to help children and teenagers cope with life's ups and downs. Scared of the dark? Martin Waddell's Sleep Tight, Little Bear can help. Grieving the death of a loved one? Glenn Ringtved's Cry, Heart, But Never Break addresses bereavement. Unsure about the emotional consequences of sex? Forever by Judy Blume tackles that tough subject. Books can't actually make problems go away, but as The Story Cure proves, they certainly can help your children feel better! (KG)
