Preschool Books for Social Emotional Skills

Preschool and early elementary books for social emotional skills like mindfulness, feelings, emotions, manners, kindness, friendship and being yourself.

As I was putting together my Pre-K Homeschool year, one of the core subjects we will be incorporating is social emotional skills. This will include things like being kind, mindfulness, gratitude, manners, self regulation, good behavior and both identifying and handling emotions. For simplicity's sake, I'm going to call them "heart" lessons. 

Since I was putting together a big list of books that would fall under this category anyway, I decided to share for any other parents looking. Obviously, I can't buy ALL of them. We already have some, we will buy others and I'll see what I can get from the library. I tried to divide them into loose categories for you!

Books about Feelings

Books on Gratitude

Just So Thankful (Both my kids have been huge Little Critter fans)
We Are Grateful: Otsaliheliga - I like the multi-cultural aspect of this one!
The Thank You Book - Elephant and Piggie are big hits around here.

Books on Mindfulness, Self-regulation and Being Yourself

Peaceful Like a Panda: 30 Mindful Moments for Playtime, Mealtime, Bedtime or Anytime! - there are a couple other books in this series as well!
Have You Filled a Bucket Today? A Guide for Daily Happiness to Kids - we don't have this one yet, but it looks like the cutest one of the series
Bucket Filling from A to Z: The Key to Being Happy - my little guy is obsessed with letters, so we had to get this one
Bear Can't Wait - I love all the Bear books. This one is about patience
The Perfect Fit - a story about being yourself instead of trying to fit in
Exclamation Mark - another story about being yourself. Both my kids have loved it!
Not Your Typical Dragon - a cute little story about a dragon who couldn't breathe fire.

The Secret Words - a book about self-confidence

Books on Friendship, Being Kind and Inclusion

Do Unto Otters - some reviews say it was a little long, but most say it is hilarious to kids.

Books on Manners
