Children's Short Story Book from the 70's or 80's...please help me find it!

I am trying to locate a book I used to read religiously when I was a child. My great aunt bought me it for christmas when I was about 6 (born in 1975), so it should have been published around the late 70's early 80's.


Its a book of short stories that give the reader the knowledge of good morals....i.e 'Standing on your own two feet' & 'Telling the truth' etc. One of the stories was of a boy with a red 'pull along' wagon....but I can't remember what the actual story was about! There were drawings on every other page, depicting the character of said short story.


I was convinced it was an Enid Blyton book, but the one I found on was not it. So, back to the drawing board.


I know my details are sketchy, but if anyone can help, I would appreciate it, as I want to buy the book for my neice.


Thank you

Your best bet is to post this message in Lost Books  - that's the area for those looking for books they are having trouble finding.
