This is part of a 3-part series. See also:
PYP inquiry picture books round-up, which includes learner attitudes and mindsets.
Sustainable Development Goals picture books round-up, which includes the global goals such as responsible production & consumption.
I’m continuing my picture book round-up today by drawing from my inquiry posts regarding learner identities, specific subjects, and social/emotional skills. I hope you can find some valuable new reads for your classroom, and I would love if you could share your own recommendations, too!
