Books About Humility for Kids
This year I am adding literature to my character development series , and these books about humility for kids should be helpful as you are teaching your children about how to display great character in their lives. Learning character is a life long journey, and I hope I can provide some great resource for you. I hope you are familiar with my character development series. We work on 52 traits — one for each week of the year. You can hover over my character development tab to see all the traits we work on throughout the year. If you are interesting in teaching your kids to be humble, I hope you will visit my other lessons on humility. Instead, humility is elevating the value of others.
Humility, dictionary definitions say, is marked by modesty, meekness, diffidence, and an unassuming attitude. Dictionaries also contrast humility with arrogance and pride. Yet we live in a culture where pride is celebrated, arrogance is almost a prerequisite to be taken seriously in business, politics, and sports. Humility can only come from those who actually have something about which to be humble. Here are 10 ways to teach humility to your kids. Never underestimate the power of teaching through example. Humility must be consistently modeled as a lifestyle, not an on-again, off-again example.
Kids today are growing up on social media, which—as much as it connects us to others in new ways—seems to offer an endless frenzy of opportunities for self-promotion and self-absorption.

'Dinosaur Train' by John Steven Gurney
Great character education books books about values are a great way to teach kids many important values, like honesty, compassion, gratitude, and more. As teachers and parents will attest, lectures are much less effective than powerful stories and examples that show the merits and consequences of the value or trait. We think these books work best as subtle discussion starters rather than direct 'lecturing' on these values. To make the value system stick, kids need to come to the conclusion themselves! So be sure to follow-up a read-aloud with some open ended questions. To find a book on a given character education or values topic, simply click on the category in the list below.
The Insider Picks team writes about stuff we think you'll like. Business Insider has affiliate partnerships, so we get a share of the revenue from your purchase. I asked my Business Insider colleagues to share the one children's book that has significantly influenced them. Seeing them both react so empathetically to the selflessness of the tree kind of strengthened my faith in humanity and my confidence that we were doing an OK job at this parenting thing. The tree gives everything from its apples to its limbs to satisfy the whims of a pretty selfish little boy until one day it is nothing but a stump.
Apr 08, PM. I teach 3rd grade. We read a book that demonstrates that value and discuss that value throughout the month. The book also goes home with each child to read with their families. I would like to find a picture book that exemplifies humility or being teachable. Some of my students this year could use some humility.
