and Vicki Has a Problem series (for older ones).

There is another one on The Giving Tree here - not sure for which age group.

And one on San Zi Jing.

Wonder Box (an online bookstore) has a section on books for "character building". I have bought a few books previously for my son. See link below

Thanx Thanx, All. Looking thru now.

Jedamum, no one reply my post so try my luck to start one. :oops: Maybe more eye catching.

Read thru the whole thread on "All About Teaching Values" but no mention about books.

Hi
Just to share... :D
NLB has an annotated bibliography of books on character building: http://mms.elibraryhub.com/SHC/PLS/NLB_ ... _pages.pdf

The actual booklet is quite thick & the soft copy of the booklet is broken down to different sections that are downloadable from here: http://www.pl.sg/PL.portal?_fiction=Fic ... &_subject=

NLB also has many other useful listings of books for children that you can download.

How to access them:
1. Go to www.pl.sg
2. Click on the 'Just Browse' tab.
3. Click on 'Recommendations' link on the left column.
4. Click on 'Children'

Picture books for preschoolers-lower pri are labelled JP.
Those labelled JS are simple stories for pri sch kids & those labelled J are for upper pri kids.

I would recommend 弟子规esp in illustrated comic version. The original versions in Chinese sounds chim, but there are many interesting versions. I think it is more popular in Malaysia than Singapore. beside teaching gracious behaviour, can also improve Chinese at the same time
