Picture Book Linky Party #3: Character Education Books

Hi!  Sarah here linking up with First Grade and Fabulous to share some Character Education books we've enjoyed sharing in our classrooms.

This is a great book for teaching working together.

 A popular one, but fun to read and teacher character change over time as well!

 An oldie, but good to have books that your kiddos probably haven't heard before!!  This one is good for confidence and being yourself.

We grew up with these books teaching a wide span of character traits!!  I still have a big collection in my room from when I was little.  I keep them tucked away in case I need them for a special purpose.

And in honor of my 2 dachshunds, I had to throw this one in!  I love reading books with dachshund character to my kiddos and this one has a sweet lesson about how everyone is special and has special "talents."

  1. I love "The Crayon Box that Talked"! I use that every year. "Pretzel" looks very cute!

  2. I love The Crayon Box that Talked as well. It is great for teaching about community and how our differences are what make us special.

  4. I love all these suggestions. I totally forgot about Pretzel. I have never read it, but see it all the time suggested on my Amazon searches. Thanks for the reminder.
    Thanks for stopping by.

  5. I might just have to pull out those old Bernstein bear books. So many good ones that I've probably forgotten about!

  10. " WOW! Bookworm Central book fairs must be WAY different than ours. The books that we get at our Bookworm Central Book fair quite varied & we had many positive comments from both faculty & parents. I can't speak for your school, but as far as our school is concerned, Bookworm Central prices are very comparable to other book fair companies. Bookworm Central has an unmatched business model in the book fair industry”
