Exploring books is a great way to help children learn about their world. Reading about a character dealing with a similar situation can help ease a child's fear and prepare her for new experiences. Children's books are available on a variety of topics from adoption to starting school to the loss of a pet. We've collected some of our favorites in our newly updated Topics Brochure. It's a list parents can trust—the books are doctor reviewed and recommended! Ask for them at your local library or bookstore.
