Please be aware, I am the type of mother who rants against The Rainbow Fish because it teaches you to be just like everyone else *and* that you have to buy your friends...

Some of my favorite (young) children's books are:

Zen Shorts
Which is a lovely story about three children who meet the panda next door and learn three lessons.

The Three Questions
A story (based on Tolstoy) about a young boy in search of the answers to when is the best time, who is the most important and what is the right thing to do.

By the Light of the Hallowe'en Moon which, although accepting that the supernatural world is real (there are goblins and ghouls and witches etc) it has no fear involved; and it teaches a very valuable lesson that your body is your own and no one has the right to touch it. (This one is out of print :()

Not A Box is a delighful book about a rabbit (in place of a child) playing with a cardboard box. The rabbit sees the box as being all the wonderful things that a box can be, and the 'grownups' around him can't. It's a good tale on how to imagin and how to stick up for yourself.

Each one of these books teaches a valuable lesson in a quiet, fun, child friendly way. I recomend them to all.
