Books That Help Empower Kids

Sometimes in life things just don’t go our way. We end up feeling down and like we just can’t get it right. Well, that’s when it’s time to pick up a book and get inspired to be the best you that you can be.

With our new move came new jobs, new schools, new friends, and new feats. My five-year-old was feeling a little slum about things and it was so much “NEW” to her that she felt that she just couldn’t do it all.

Books that empower children to be great

This meant that it was time for a trip to the library to grab some inspiring books. I want my girls to feel like no matter what happens and how much “NEW” Change happens that they can handle it and “SLAY”. Here are a few books that we picked up and read that by the end of this week has my girls feeling like they can “SLAY” whatever comes their way.

All of these books show children that they are great, awesome and no matter what they can make it. I love books like these and I plan on reading more of these for my girls. Every now and then we all get down and every now and then we need a pick me up and these here books can help.

If you plan on finding these in your local library I suggest that you go to your libraries website and find all the books and have them all put on hold. I couldn’t find them all at the same library, but thanks to the interlibrary system I was able to have them all sent to one library and put on hold for me to pick up three days later.

If you would like to see these and more books like these then please visit my Amazon store HERE!
