Books That Inspire Cooperation

For sure one of the best tools in our home for working on “stuff”, whether it is fears, attitudes, upcoming changes, education, is our book collection.

Here are a few of my favorites for promoting good behavior in toddlers & preschoolers:

Llama Llama Mad at Mama, by Anna Dewdney
A patient mama llama shows her cranky son that cooperation can make even a boring trip to Shop-O-Rama fun.

Five Nice Mice, by Chisato Tashiro
After being shut out of a frogs-only concert, the mice decide to put on their own show and end up making beautiful music with everyone – including the frogs.

Duck & Goose, by Tad Hills
Duck & Goose have a big fight over a giant egg. When it turns out to be a ball, they learn to play with it together.

Grumpy Bird, by Jeremey Tankard
Bird is having a bad day until a parade of animal pals follows him around and helps turn his frown upside down.

The Tale of Pip & Squeak, by Kate Duke
Two mouse brothers with nothing in common work together to throw the best party ever.

{What are your “teachable moment” books of choice? Any books you love for elementary aged kids that foster cooperation and good behavior?}

  1. Not exactly a picture book, but Chloe and I love reading the Little House on the Prairie books together. With these, she always seems to have a renewed appreciation for such a different way of life (and an appreciation for how easy kids have it today).
