If you have cable, you may want to check out some of the shows on PBS. Dragon Tales & the Berenstain Bears have themes like kindness, being a good friend, getting along with siblings, helping others, sharing, etc. The Berenstain Bears also have books, but I don't know if Dargon Tales does.
There's also a show done by the same people who make Veggie Tales. It's called 3-2-1 Penguins. It has religious themes (like Veggie Tales). It's about two children who are staying with their grandmother in England for the summer. Both my kids really enjoy it.
