Picture Books that Promote Core Values
  FCSC Library    Teacher Resources  CBIS IMC     

Below you will find a list of books that reinforce the Core Values that we have chosen to instill in our students. The titles that appear in green are available in our library or off of my personal bookshelf. The titles in black should be available from the public library or other schools. I would be happy to assist you in finding a specific title or all of them.  It is my intention to build a picture book collection in our library for this exact purpose, but need to fund this project. Please e-mail me if you have a title you think should be added to this list. I'm also in the process of creating a chapter book list that would support our mission.  Please keep in mind that most of these titles would support more than one of our core values.
Thanks, Lee Ann Uecker
