There are so many different types of bravery — to be oneself when pressured to be different, to stand up for others, to find hope when it can sometimes be difficult to do so. These are all lifelong lessons that will serve your students well into young adulthood and beyond.

Luckily, teaching them how to harness this courage doesn't have to be difficult. With amazing books and lovable characters and stories, these lessons will stick with your students as they grow. 

For example, the Princess Truly series is a wonderful way to teach younger children to have confidence in their abilities and help further develop their self esteem. Titles such as Princess Truly: I Am Mighty! will show your students how to find courage to overcome any challenge when they believe in themselves and their own unique abilities.

Older readers will love the stories in Stand Up! 10 Mighty Women Who Made a ChangeFrom Ruby Bridges and Rosa Parks to Mari Copeni, students will take inspiration from brave women who have fought for noble causes in the past and the present.
