The aim of this study is to determine not only what the values transfer through texts but also how these values are distributed in the 6th grade Turkish course books. In the 2596 numbered Notification Review, six different publishing firms have been indicated for sixth grade course books. Through the study, among these firms except Bilsoft ( the reason for not publishing the book) the other five firms’ Turkish course books have been all examined. (Millî E?itim Bakanl??? Yay., Özgün Matbaac?l?k, A Yay?nlar?, Koza Yay?n Da??t?m, Evrensel ?leti?im Yay?nlar?) In the study, the survey method was used. The created “The Value Examining Form” has been applied on the texts in the course books and through this way, the values were identified. During the text choosing process, all texts were investigated without making any style distinction. The values determined in texts were formed as quantitative data and analysed via SPSS packet programme. At the end of the analysis, it was determined that the texts in the course books were insufficient in transferring existing values. The texts in the course books mostly transfer affection, sensibility and patriotism. Hospitality, having importance to family relations and peace values are the least transferring ones.
