About Us

Resiliency Kids offers books and resources that focus on emotional well-being. We make this fun for kids by choosing content they love! By creating content for children, we hope to highlight the importance of emotional well-being to all parents. A resilient person exercises self-awareness and positive coping in the face of hardship. These are areas that can be influenced by the experiences a parent gives their children.  Please see our blog for helpful parenting resources. 

A portion of all sales will be donated to Together We Rise, a non-profit helping foster children.
