Good Books For Highly Sensitive Children

Having a hard time finding good books for highly sensitive children?

This list of children’s books is based on recommendations from parents of highly sensitive children. They may not trigger the same reaction in your child, but this may be a good place to start if you’re looking for suitable bedtime stories.

Please note I have not read all these books, but I’m working on it.
