Top 10 picture books with self-help messages

1. Penguins Hidden Talent by Alex Latimer
Penguinís Hidden Talent is a modern light-hearted tale about a Penguin who would love to take part in the big annual talent show but just canít find his own special talent. Itís a lovely reminder that we all have something special to give to the world, it just sometimes takes a little time and good friends to help us figure it out.

2. The Dot by Peter H Reynolds
Vashti says she canít draw. Her teacher thinks she can. The Dot is an inspiring story about how the power of someone believing in you (and the opportunity to look at something from a different perspective), can reveal greatness. The Dot helps us see that there is a creative spirit in all of us.

5. Giraffes Canít Dance by Giles Andreae, illustrated by Guy Parker-Rees

Gerald dreads the great Jungle Dance every year because he canít dance like the other animals who laugh at him and call him a fool. As he creeps off feeling alone, a cricket helps him realise that we are all different and some of us just dance to a different tune! This funny and delightful story shows us the importance of compassion and the beauty of diversity.
