- Early childhood, character value, teaching material model
- This research is motivated by the results of observations with teachers about the phenomenon of children’s character development through story media that is inconsistent with the development of children ages 5-6 years old. It is assumed that the stories used by the teacher does not contain character traits. Thus, this study aims to develop a story model for the strengthening of early childhood character traits. The focuses of the character values in the developed story are namely: honesty; environmental caring, and social caring. This study used a research and development model. The analysis process used a qualitative descriptive analysis of the results of observations on teacher responses as users. The steps were potential and issues, data collection, product design, design validation, design revision, product testing. This research resulted in a product in the form of three stories titles: “Janji Kardosi”, “Kabar dari Samudra”, and “Pipit dan Elang”. Book eligibility uses two criteria, namely instructional criteria and presentation criteria. The validation is carried out by academics (media expert tests) and practitioners in the field of early childhood education. Meanwhile, the readability of the three storybook titles was carried out to six kindergarten teachers. Based on the learning criteria, the created storybook has honesty, environmental caring, and social caring character traits, while the performance criteria (illustrations) are able to explain the stories’ sequences, settings, animations, and characters very well. In addition, based on the aspects of child development, the books created have a more dominant visual appearance compared to text and the type face in the storybooks possesses a good readability level for children.
