I've been looking for books on moral values that could be explained to children, preferably christian values but I wouldn't mind reading what other religions are teaching in terms of basic moral principals to children.

anybody who could recommend anything ?
thanks !

VeggieTales rocks for the preschool set.

I think Max Lucado may have some books. He also has the video series about Hermie. Which my kids love. :

There is also, I think, something from Bill Bennet--Children's Book of Virtues? maybe?

Childrens book of a Virtues was good.

we had one called Parables from Nature (<- look, its online) it was so boring I wanted to poke my eyes out but it gets a lot of good reviews. it was sweet. I'll give it that.

The truest answer to violence is love. The truest answer to death is life. The only prevention for violence is for the heart to have no violence within it.  We cannot prevent evil through any system devised by mankind. But we can grapple with evil and defeat it, but only with love—real love.

Kid Ethics from A to Z is a workbook/activity book with stories and cartoon-like pictures.

If You Had to Choose, What Would You Do? presents moral dilemmas to discuss with your children. My dd finds this kind of thing very engaging.

Thought of another one. Little Visits with God is a great book ... I've had it since I was a little kid, and read the stories over and over again.

They now have Little Visits with Jesus and Little Visits for Toddlers, as well.

the best collection of titles that i know of is here:

 

http://www.quakerbooks.org/children-young-adults

 

the books are sorted by age group, and then by broad topic.  if you look on the left sidebar, you can choose which age you need.  good luck!

 

 

my favorites are the books for primary age children on integrity:

Looks like I'm a bit late in commenting here, but I was searching for the same thing for my kids, when I decided to help fill the lack by creating books like these.

In case you are still needing some, you can find a few that i've started with at this link:

http://icharacter.org/christian-books-for-children

 

I'll be adding more soon.
