Youth Book Lists

This LibGuide collects single-topic Youth bibliographies and booklists.

Creating Classroom Cultures of Compassion and Connection

This list was created in September 2020 to support LITED 3121 (Children's Literature for Diversity and Social Justice) and their discussion of restorative justice. The books on this list were identified as titles that could promote community values, connection, and compassion.

If you have feedback to share about any of the titles on this list, please get in touch with the Youth Services Librarian! I look forward to hearing from you.

Book descriptions in quotation marks come from our catalog. Book descriptions without quotation marks are original to this list.
