Looking for Special
A storybook featuring Lily about the importance of confidence as a key skill in building resilience.
Read this story together, then invite your child to celebrate how he or she is special, strong, and growing by doing the activity at the end.
This story introduces Lily, a Sesame Street friend who has been through a lot. Lily and her family haven’t always had all the food they needed, and for a while they didn’t have a home of their own. But they’ve come through these hard times and they’re stronger for it. Like all children (and grown-ups!), Lily needs to find a way to stand strong, proud, and tall in herself.
Whether the problems children face are big or small, it helps to build resilience—the ability to move through challenges and bounce back from setbacks—and confidence is an important piece.
