Things We Learn From Children's Books: Puss in Boots by Charles Perrault
Puss in Boots’ is a book that features a cat as the protagonist! While many question how a scheming, devious, selfish cat can actually teach children any morals, there are a few things that can be learnt from this book:

Loyalty is a virtue: When his master died, Puss could have very easily disappeared.However, his loyalty to the master ensured that he stayed on and this teaches children the importance of being a loyal friend.

Dress for success: Puss knew that he had to dress in a manner that made people take him seriously.This is a great lesson for children on the importance of dressing properly and taking pride in their appearance. Shabby dressing gets you nowhere.

Brain vs Brawn: Puss knew that he would not be able to beat the Ogre in a physical fight, so he tricked him into a shape that would be more manageable for him. This teaches children that you don’t need to be physically fit to win every fight! You can outsmart people with your brains. Thinking smart is always better than violence. Having said that, being healthy is also good for you.
