Abstract
Indonesian language teaching has been developed based on character-building approach. One effort that can be done to develop and teach values of character education towards students is through fairy-tale textbooks. Fairy-tale is one of literary works which is not only for reading as entertaining media, but also for building characters and influencing the readers. Therefore, the contents of the fairy-tale should perform moral values that are good for the students' character development. The ideal expectation of the fairy-tale reading activity is that the students can identify types of characters and apply them into their daily lives so that they will shape a good personality. Character-building values integrated in fairy-tale textbooks are stated in the material contents and teaching-learning activities. The contents of fairy-tale textbooks can be one of the modelling types of character value implementation in students' personality. In the teaching and learning process as the developing digital era, the students are taught to behave well. However, in the real implementation, fairy-tales as the media of students' character-building, are decreasing as the existence of online games. It shows that the students' perspective to leave literary works becomes higher in the daily life. On the other side, the existence and quality of fairy-tale textbooks used by Indonesian language teachers are still low and only restricted from the textbooks provided by the government. Related to this, efforts to realize the character-building through fairy-tale textbooks need to be seriously made since character-building can be implemented in fairy-tale appreciation subject.
