Kids Book Database


There have been multiple times as a mom that I’ve gone to the library, bookstore, or Internet in search of a kid’s book on a particular topic, and I’ve realized kid’s books aren’t organized the way adults books are, and it’s very difficult to find a book by topic.  When my daughter started having bad dreams, I wanted a book to comfort her.  When she lost her first tooth, I wanted a book to share her excitement.  I’ve seen posts in mom groups asking about books on every topic from death to divorce to bullying.

I finally decided to do something about this.  I posted in mom groups and asked therapists and authors about their favorite books in all these categories and more.  I compiled their answers, along with my own favorites, and created this database.  I am so excited to have this now every time my kids experience something that I want to share with them via books, and I’m thrilled to share it with you.

If you have a favorite that you don’t see here, please let me know and I’ll add it.
