This is a growing list of resources for parents/educators, I hope you find something helpful! Most of these resources will be in English but I will note if it is available in other languages.


These will link to Goodreads so you can read more about each book and what others have said. I strongly urge you to try to find a local bookstore to buy these books from if possible
