I received three books from The Kind Kids Character Education Book Series.  Designed for preschoolers, I've been reading them to my younger nieces.  All three feature adorable animal characters, with stories that help detail proper values and morals.  They are written in rhythmic form, making the stories catchy and memorable.
 
Bestie Bee tells of a young female bee who has never been to school.  She stays home and is catered to by her parents.  She doesn't have to share and she can sleep as late as she wants.  She is fearful because she'll have to share once she starts preschool.  During the first days of school, Bestie Bee hordes all the toys and keeps to herself.  She soon learns that sharing is the right thing to do and it's more fun to play with toys when she shares with others.
The book, Koby, tells of a kangaroo who worried all day and night.  He worried about becoming ill and misplacing belongings, among other things.  After speaking with his mother about his worries, she assured him that all is well and worrying doesn't accomplish anything.  She taught Koby to change the thoughts in his head to pleasantries.  In the end, Koby learns to focus on other, more pleasing thoughts.

Arabelle is a book that tells of girl bat who loves looking for fruit at night.  One day she smacks into a tree trunk and realizes she's lost her vision.  Her parents get her a pair of pink glasses.  At first, Arabelle is afraid people will make fun of her.  But she is gently reminded that the things that make us special are how different we all are.

All three books are uplifting and encouraging in a fun way.  Of the three, Bestie Bee was our favorite.
 
 
Win It!
 
One person will win three books from The Kind Kids Character Education Book Series

I have 3 kids and I can see where each book speaks to each of their different personalities. Of course, one of my kids is 16, and not into kids books, but she is a worrier and could learn something from Koby!!

The book I am most excited about is the Arabelle book. I want my 2 yr old grand daughter to know that everyone is different and we should accept that. I just think it would be a fantastic book.
