Not completely secular, but still worth buying.

I purchased this book for my homeschool. It's a fairly large book with some great stories and morals. However, the final chapter is "Faith" and full of "God" stories and poems. We avoid that chapter, but find plenty of useful things in the other chapters.

Basic Tried and True Values in Short Story Form!

Loved it! It is a wonderful book that brings the reader back to the basic tried and true values. I love William Bennett, he makes sense of this world and cuts to the core. You can not help but agree with him. The stories told offer insight into many of life's dilema's that may arise from joy, hurt, love, anger, and basically a sense of fair play. At any time there is something to be gained by each story told. It is very well written and attention grabbing. Worth the purchase!

Great Book!

My husband and I don't have any kids yet, but we bought this book to read to each other. It is wonderful! Some stories are touching, some are funny, some are quite clever, and all are moral. Every story is very interesting and yet somehow manages to secretly slip in a point about being good to yourself and others. This book is thick with lots of stories, but they're all very short. We both think this is one of the most entertaining books we have ever bought.

Buy it for someone you love.

This book, and its predecessor, The Book of Virtues, are indispensable to your family's library. I gave them both to my entire family for Christmas last year, and kept one of each for myself. Whether you simply value good literature, yearn for the stuff of your youth (or your grandmother's youth), or desire quality stories to share with your nieces, nephews and grandchildren, you need both of these books.

Magic for returning to things we have forgotten.

Beginning with the words of two old lullabyes for children, this collection of stories from so many corners of the world emerges gently from the times and places of their origins. Stories of depth, of substance, of value. Stories with an imagery of old to captivate the child in each of us.The quote by W. B. Yeats characterizes the way in which so many of the stories' authors reach out to the young reader (or listener): "I have spread my dreams under your feet. Tread softly because you tread upon my dreams."These stories are truly an opportunity to share intimately in the dreams of daring dreamers. They comprise the moral stuff to give directions in life's journey; and thus, a 'compass'. Many stories so obviously written for children; yet, some of even greater value to adults who have kept the heart of a child.
