    Hi,
    I am hoping to gather as many suggestions as possible of quality and popular books (for any age group) that can be used to teach children about moral and social issues (such as co-operation, bereavement, fostering and adoption, reconciliation (especially this), caring for others etc). I just came across 'Refugees' by David Miller that is an animal based picture book that could be used across key stage one and two within a project on environmental issues and, of course, refugees.

    Have a look at 'Four Feet, Two Sandals', 'Listen to the Wind' or 'Three Cups of Tea', 'For Every Child', 'If The World Were A Village' and books by Jeannie Baker for environmental issues.
