This booklist for young children covers the challenges of sibling rivalry and celebrates sibling relationships. These books are perfect for brothers and sisters to read together. 

Sharing stories is a great way to explore challenging issues with children. Using gentle, age appropriate picture books can help start conversations, encourage questions, reassure children that others have faced the same problems or give them a preview to an upcoming situation they may be worried about. 

Share these books with your child to help discuss any questions or concerns they may have.

Our librarians have gathered the best titles to create the Special times, special needs series of recommended reading lists with books to share with children and to support parents and carers.
