Abstract

Books about common pediatric concerns read to or by children can serve several purposes: 1) provide accurate information, 2) normalize feelings and experiences, 3) facilitate conversations between parents and children about difficult topics, 4) help children develop strategies to cope with complex situations, and 5) develop understanding and empathy for children coping with a variety of circumstances. Our recommended list of books is based on how regularly we have received requests for book suggestions from parents, children, students, residents, and clinicians.
