One of the indirect functions of the books is to help children discern the good, the nice and the correct through characters or protagonists to be self-identified. This study is to reveal what Turkish language teachers think about the character traits in children's books. One of the qualitative methods, phenomonological design was used in the study. The sample of the study was composed of Turkish language teachers teaching in public schools in different regions through snowball sampling. The data of the study were collected from Turkish language teachers by means of standardized open-ended interview form. The data were first analyzed by the researcher through descriptive analysis and the answers to questions in the interview form were classified in two different ways. The data under these two categories were tested in terms of content and classified into code and themes. The results of the study showed that the teachers were not informed of the protagonists in children's books, their traits, expectations of child readers and local and international sources in this field.
