Recommended Books for Children

In my clinical practice, I often recommend to my child clients and their parents different books that can support and reinforce the therapeutic work we do together. The books can be helpful resources for toddlers, pre-school, and school-aged children (ages 2 to 12).

Of course, it is important to keep in mind that these books do not replace seeking professional help from a psychologist, psychiatrist, psychotherapist or other health professional, especially for more severe and complex problems. Rather, these recommended books can be a good place to start and can compliment the services you are receiving.

    • Hi Gina,
      Thank-you for your email and for contacting me. I also appreciate the very positive and encouraging verbal feedback you gave about my website.
      I do think you will find “The Explosive Child” helpful as well as “The Tiger in my chest” for your 4-year old. These are both great places to start.
      Best wishes,
      Dr. Stephanie

  1. Bonsoir Dr. Stephanie, je viens juste de découvrir vos livres. Ils sont vraiment intéressants, je me demandais s’ils étaient en français aussi. Merci
