Was it a book that teaches teens to be skeptical of libertarianism?

The Great Brain books really are great, even if with their religious elements and the Great Brain eventually growing up to go on a Mormon mission.

(Don't believe me?  Read Papa Married a Mormon, the adult book that sparked the kids' series.)

Another great series for younger kids is the I Am A Little Animal series by Francois Crozait. Every volume teaches about a different little animal, is really well-illustrated, and is nice and simple for the 2-5 or so set.  I asked my 3-year-old daughter what books she had that she really liked but that also taught her things, and these were the first ones she mentioned.

"Oh, like maybe, I Am A Little Alligator?  Or I am A Little Monkey?  Or I am a Little Giraffe...?"

Definitely recommended.
