From wearing glasses to divorce and losing a family member, these picture books take on subjects that can be anxiety-inducing for all, with care and even humor. At Beyond the Blackboard, we want to help you make difficult and tender topics simpler to understand.

We want our children to ask questions, but sometimes we have to temper our instinct to protect them from subjects we ourselves might not be the most confident talking about. Family difficulties, bullying, and current events can be disheartening or just plain hard. So, how do we approach these tender topics without major awkwardness, while still preparing our children for the world?

Our collection of children's books helps grown-ups confidently take on tender topics, and offer helpful dialogue for discussing these tough subjects. The books in this collection can help you and your children with your conversations and reflections!
