Kids Books That Teach Important Life Lessons

I have noticed in my many years as a childcare worker, and a now a parent, that children are deeply touched by the books they read. This is why I like to read them books that teach important life lessons. During the many years that I have been reading books to children, these have stood out as some of the very best.

The Dark by Lemony Snicket, illustrated by Jon Klassen. Ive looked at this as Jon Klassen is a favourite children's book illustrator of mine, his work is child friendly but quite sophisticated in the overall look of the work he creates. In reference to the theme of my book being Pandoras Box, this book uses dark and light and the idea of fear in a child friendly way.
