Just Enough and the World Around Us Series

It's never too early to start talking with children about the facts of life, but it isn’t easy either. Child psychologist Dr. Jillian Roberts created the Just Enough series as a tool to help caregivers broach uncomfortable or challenging subjects with little ones.
The World Around Us series introduces children to complex cultural and social issues in a straightforward and accessible way. These illustrated nonfiction picture books tackle global concerns and initiate conversations about subjects that are difficult, sad or overwhelming with school-aged children who are just beginning to observe the world around them.
