About the Project

The BounceBack Books website is a project of the KU Center for Public Partnerships and Research and the Iowa Department of Public Health. The project grew from the partners’ work on Lemonade for Life, a training program for family support professionals that uses ACEs research to build hope and resilience among families.

BounceBack Books is a work in progress, and we are continually adding new books and resources to the site. Do you have a favorite picture book you’d like featured here? Send in your ideas, and we’ll work with you to highlight books and develop discussion prompts that fit our BounceBack criteria.
