Top Five Confidence Boosting Picture Books 

  1. Yoko by Rosemary Wells. Yoko has the confidence to bring her unique lunch to school. She doesn’t “yuck anyone else’s yum” even when other kids call her lunch icky.

  3. Zoomer by Ned Young. Zoomer isn’t afraid to let his imagination run wild.
  4. Ninja by Arree Chung. Maxwell is ready to face any obstacles as a true ninja.
  5. The Book With No Pictures by B.J. Novak. If you need the confidence–and permission–to be silly, you get both in this book.
