6 national books for the emotional and intellectual maturation of children

To celebrate National Children’s Book Day, celebrated on April 18, check out some incredible national books for children

Children’s stories are essential not only to stimulate creativity, critical thinking and give autonomy to little ones, but they also help children understand the society in which they live. For example, works that present the power of friendship teach the importance of empathy, loyalty, and kindness.

Narratives that explore sadness and melancholy help with social and emotional development. There are also plots that stimulate the imagination of young readers, especially those that celebrate freedom of expression and autonomy in childhood.

With this in mind, to celebrate National Children’s Book Day, celebrated on April 18, we have separated six stories written and illustrated by Brazilians, full of learning and fun adventures. Each narrative chosen below will help children on this personal journey of emotional and intellectual maturity. Check out:
