I originally found this list at KB Connected, along with several other lists of books on different themes. Some of the other themes that might be of interest to readers of this blog are: Books About Fine Art, Books About Math, Books About Strong Girls, and Books for Field Trips. All of these lists are archived on the site, “No Time for Flashcards.” It looks like most of them are picture books, but don’t forget that picture books can often generate excellent discussions in the later grades.
Along with the mainstream books on the list of “Books About Being Different“, such as Todd Parr’s It’s Okay to Be Different, there were quite a few that I have never seen. I am looking forward to exploring some of them – particularly Moosetache, as mustaches are all the rage with the tweens right now (according to my daughter and her friends)!
For a very small smattering of other suggestions of books for gifted kids, you can check out my Pinterest board here. I plan to add many more to it soon!
