Books to help kids make sense of life's most difficult moments and start important conversations.

A Kids Book About Death
This book dives right into the weighty topic that most adults prefer to avoid thinking or talking about: death. It explains the practical aspects and gracefully navigates the nuances of emotion and community that surround something we all experience.

Taryn Schuelke (she/her), CT, CCLS, is the Grief and Bereavement Specialist on the Pediatric Palliative Care Team at Texas Children’s Hospital. She is certified in thanatology—death, dying, and bereavement—and a certified child life specialist. She thinks caring for children at the end of their life is a great honor and immensely sacred work.

A Kids Book About Sexual Abuse
Some of the most difficult things to talk about are also the most important. Sexual abuse happens more often than people realize but most kids don’t learn about it until after it happens. This book will help give them the language to understand what sexual abuse is and start the conversation around owning their bodies and trusting their instincts.

Evelyn Yang (she/her) is a mom to 2 boys and an advocate for families. She is passionate about justice, neurodiversity, and food. Her platform and advocacy work have been an unexpected blessing after her husband ran for president. She still actively works on overcoming her own fears and uses her experiences to help people.

A Kids Book About Incarceration
Incarceration is a big word for a HUGE topic. It can bring up difficult questions and feelings—especially when it affects you directly. This book explores incarceration, crimes, and prison, as well as the power of choices. The author’s story highlights the impact of choices and how someone can grow, learn, and change the path they’ve been on. 

Ethan Thrower (he/him) is an alternative school social worker committed to social justice and restorative practices. He uses his story of incarceration as a tool to discuss decision-making, resilience, and change with youth in his community. He lives in Portland, Oregon, with his wife and 2 kids, who are the light of his life. 

A Kids Book About Divorce
When divorce happens, it happens to everyone in the family and kids are left with a lot of questions. This is a tough conversation to have, and some of the answers can hurt. This book is meant to help start an honest discussion with kids about what to expect when parents go their separate ways—written by a parent who has been there.

Ashley Simpo (she/her) is a writer, mother, and wellness advocate, writing about motherhood and civic issues through the lens of race, culture, and politics. She lives in New York City where she co-parents her son, Orion, and leads conversations about mothers and children.

A Kids Book About Racism
Yes, this really is a kids book about racism. Inside, you’ll find a clear description of what racism is, how it makes people feel when they experience it, and how it makes people feel when they experience it, and how to spot it when it happens. This is one conversation that’s never too early to start, and this book was written to be an introduction for kids on the topic.

Jelani Memory (he/him) is an African American entrepreneur, thinker, and constant learner. He lives in Portland, Oregon, with his wife and 6 kids. He still wants to be an artist when he grows up.
