Growing in Goodness

I found this book to be just wonderful! I especially liked the way the author uses her life stories to illustrate the virtues and I have gained a new perspective on several virtues -- most especially Compassion and Integrity. Thank you Chrissie, Rebecca and Suzanne for an invaluable book filled with warm stories and deep faith.

A must read for every family

Garden of Virtues is a fundamental tool that parents can use to teach their children the things they need to learn at home. So many children never learn any of these lessons and grow to be the kind of adults we all see in the news doing unspeakable things. I even found virtues in this book that I didn't know were virtues! What a terrific way for parents to show values to children (wonderfully illustrated).

A foundation for helping your family life

I have read 5-6 books on child rearing and tried several "approaches". They all felt so stilted and programed. By chance I stumbled onto this book and I am thrilled. I decided I would "force myself" to read through it and see what I came away with...well I am 3/4 of the way through and loving every page. Not preachy at all but rather like a really good friend who gives really good advice. Of course it is not nessarily a how-to for child raising but it is an invaluable tool.

Another Great Christmas Present!

For the last few years, I've given the GARDEN OF VIRTUES CALENDAR for Christmas presents to the parents of my nieces, nephews, godchildren and grandchildren. I am thrilled to learn of this companion book! The colorful, creative illustrations makes it fun to read and learn for both adults and children. I especially enjoyed the real-life personal stories the authors used to highlight the different virtues. Reading the book with my husband, we were reminded of some important virtues that we've forgotten to practice! All in all, this is a delightful "feel-good" book that will help to bring families and couples closer together. I strongly reccommend it!

Wonderful Example for Parents and Children

This book has excellent illustrations while it clearly explains the virtues in a language everyone can understand. I definitely recommend this book to anyone who would like to explore virtues such as humility, rseponsibility, and justice. Even the kids can use The Garden of Virtues as a reference with simple definitions to help them use the virtues in their own lives.
