Everyone feels self-conscious at one time or another. Sometimes, it can be a particularly difficult emotion to navigate, especially for younger students. Although insecurity is a hard feeling to understand, these best-selling books about confidence will help your students feel more comfortable in their own skin.  

For instance, I Color Myself Different is based on Colin Kaepernick’s experiences as a child and is a joyful ode to having the courage to express yourself and advocate for change. Young readers will learn valuable lessons about self-love. 

Meanwhile, a community of kindness is crucial to making everyone feel confident in themselves and others. Books about positive thinking can guide students to mimic what they read in real life. For example, Princess Truly: I Am a Super Girl is all about self-empowerment and using uplifting words to feel confident.
