Stories are an excellent medium for developing the values we want all children to grow up with.
The Centre for Learning Resources has created the ‘Gudbud Series’ of story books, focusing on basic human values that are relevant to the lives of young children This pack of three colorfully illustrated books on art paper includes three titles from Gudbud series. These are: The Gudbuds Get out of a Mess, Madam Gudbud takes a break, and At the Park in Gudbudland.
In the Gudbuds Get Out of Mess, Children learn about the importance of co-operation within the family - that a happy family is not one in which each member can always do only what she/he wants.
In Mama Gudbud Takes a Break, children appreciate the needs and desires of a mother as an individual, and the give-and-take that makes for happiness within a family
In At the Park in Gudbudland, children appreciate individual differences amongst people and experience what it feels like to be left out and to be included. The story helps to inculcate a respect for diversity and reveals the true meaning of friendship.
