Benefits of Bibliotherapy

"The use of literature to address a problem or issue, or stimulate thinking about values has a variety of benefits for students of all ages. Stories that are realistic, developmentally appropriate, and relevant to students' lives can provide emotional support by letting children know that they are not alone in their feelings or the first to encounter a particular problem or challenge."  Words That Heal  from the Anti-Defamation League
