Guide tweens into a life of physical, mental, and social wellness with books that focus on each of these dimensions. You’ll find books on this list like Superpowered, that address mental health, along with other books like It’s Perfectly Normal, that address physical health, and The Care and Feeding of a Pet Black Hole, that tackle emotional health.

Especially at this age, when wellness becomes more independent, it’s important to put tweens on the right track. These nine books can help them on their journey to wellness in all areas of life.
