The Nashville Public Library has received a large donation of self-help books for children to read. They are written from a children’s point of view and will help them understand how to deal with problems that they encounter in life.
Small Horizon imprint features children’s books written by teachers and mental health professionals that teach children crisis, coping, tolerance and service skills.
They provide books which fit the growing needs of our society’s children, whether it be to aid a child coping with death, reach out to a child in trouble or help a child reach his or her full potential.
