Back to basics

Values, morals taught through poems and stories. Truly what our children need to know, learn and apply in this century

Wrong book, right dust jacket

I ordered the children’s book of virtues, but received the children’s book of faith disguised with an incorrect dust jacket. I’m a little confused about the collection of stories in the book of faith, they’re kind of all over the place: Bible stories, poetry, patriotism/American historical figures, saints. The incorrect book seem to lack focus, and makes me hesitant about a second attempt at buying the authors virtue book.

Beautiful book with high moral content

My kids love being read to from this book. The illustrations are beautiful and I love how to content is separated by theme such as bravery, responsibility, etc. This will be a staple for years to come.

Fabulous moral stories...the best compilation I've found so far...

As a homeschool mother I am always looking for great stories for my almost 7 yo and my 2.5 yo. This book is part of the curriculum for Sonlight and it is fabulous. My daughter's favorite is about two brothers, one who doesn't let his "please" out of his mouth so the "please" jumps into the other brothers' mouth (which makes him say all his "pleases" twice). Eventually though, the "please-less" mouth wants his please back and his "please" is thrilled to be at home and allowed to get some fresh air. The stories are grouped by moral or attribute (compassion, courage, etc.). Both male and female main characters throughout the stories and the poems makes this book appropriate for both boys and girls. I highly, highly recommend this book, no qualms about it.

wonderful book of virtues, beautifully illustrated

My daughter (6 yo) loves this book, and I do too. The stories are entertaining and engaging, and the illustrations are wonderful. The book hearkens back to good old-fashioned values and morals, and is completely unashamed in doing so. Mr. Bennett writes in the foreword that the process of intentionally instructing the young in virtues was done without embarrassment in our recent past. I enjoyed the frankness of the approach in this book. Each selection is headed by a summary of the lesson contained in it. This collection includes poems, fables from Aesop, adaptations of fairy tales, and other stories from cultures around the world in order to illustrate certain virtues, such as responsibility, kindness, honesty, and good manners. The selections are of a good length to sustain the interest of a young(4 - 8 yo) child. I would highly recommend this book to anyone who wants to inculcate good values.

An excellent collection

I bought this book for my 5 and 3 years old children and we all enjoy this book very much. The stories, though mostly well known tales, are written well and can be read out loud nicely. They vary in lengths (from short poems to stories several pages long), and they also vary in their complexity suitable for children of various ages. Illustrations are on every page. All the stories end on a positive note. They teach children about perseverence, love, honor, and justice. This is a welcome addition to our huge collection of children's stories.

Great Morals, Good Stories, Well Illustrated

We're on our second read through of this book of children's morality tales.With poems, short homilies and stories, Bill Bennett entertains young children as life's good lessons are imparted. The accompanying illustrations are visually delightful.Some of the stories, because of word usage, appeal to a slightly older audience than my four and five year olds, but they can appreciate most of the vignettes. A good book that helps parents in childhood instruction.

Children's Book of Virtues

This is an excellent book to read to your young ones (4+) The stories are old yet the principles are ageless. The children will curl up and live these tales. I find myself truely enjoying this special time. When they get to six or seven I would strongly recommend moving to the Book of Virtues by William J. Bennett. The stories will sweep you and the children away. MY childrens favorite time is reading these stories. They actually ask for the book and seldom does anything else draw such smiles and "Thank You Daddys". Enjoy the experience.
