Stories and Activities to Help Build Self-Esteem, Confidence, Positive Body Image, and Resilience in Children

By Naomi Richards and Julia Hague. Twenty-nine real-life and relatable stories are at the heart of this practical resource designed to help children develop confidence and resilience. Accompanied by ready-to-use lesson plans that include activities, discussion questions, and learning outcomes, the stories demonstrate ways to deal with commonly faced problems like getting picked last in gym class, being faced with something you think you can't do, and feeling like you need a best friend. Topics covered: body image, puberty, peer pressure, friendship troubles, bullying, self-esteem, confidence, and self-acceptance. For use with groups or one-to-one. Grades K–6. 8½" x 11".

"A treasure trove of stories for opening up discussions with 5 to 11 year olds about a wide range of issues which may be troubling them. These accessibly short stories about kids "just like me" are a great resource for teachers and parents alike and are enhanced by guidance notes and questions for exploration for supporting adults. I'll be keeping my copy close to hand and sharing it widely."
—Dr Pooky Knightsmith, Child & Adolescent Mental health Specialist and Advisor to the PSHE Association
