Editorial Reviews

When Zach watches a dreadful fire destroy an immigrant family's home, his indifference about getting involved slowly wanes, as Plato recounts inspiring stories of compassion. "The Good Samaritan" - who renounces prejudice in favor of saving a life; the selflessness of a young girl in "The Legend of the Dipper;" the tale of "Androcles and the Lion," a demonstration in compassion given and kindness returned; and the poem "The New Colossus," all help Zach grasp the significance of reaching out to those in need.

This volume entitled Compassion is thirty minutes long with several inspiring stories told by Plato to Zack and Annie. The rest of the ensemble is Aristotle (Prairie Dog), Socrates (Bobcat) and Aurora (red-tailed hawk). They all meet on Plato's Peak sharing their life lessons.

Plato shares tales from Greek myths, Asian legends, fairytales and folklore. When Zack and Annie encounter challenges in their daily lives they share with Plato their concerns. Plato and the other animal friends then discuss how they have overcome these obstacles and help guide them in the right direction.

In volume three, Adventures From The Book Of Virtues - Compassion Zack is deeply concerned for a family that lost their home due to a fire. While riding his bike he comes along the scene and watches standing in the street. After the fireman tells the owner that he can rebuild the man states he has only been in this country a few months and cannot afford to do this. When the son arrives home he spots Zack there and says hello to him. When someone asks Zack if he knows the family he says no and pedals away.

All these stories help Zack understand the meaning of Compassion and guide him in his endeavor to help the new kid from his class who lost his house in the fire. The next lesson comes about when Zack is reluctant to help rebuild the house with an organization Annie tells him about. The thought of having to give up something he likes and his time in order to help the family has not registered with Zack yet. Plato than explains about the rewards Zack can receive from helping others with the story of Androcles and the Lion. The reward for saving the lion in the beginning was his friendship and then their freedom.

How can adults cover every lesson each child needs through life? Start with this series, "Book of Virtues." My niece and nephew are 4 & 7 and love them. They are truly terrific videos with loving, calming messages. Their parents prefer this to "Sponge-Bob", etc. & the kids always request their 'learning stories.'

The "Adventures from the Book of Birtues: COMPASSION is a great teaching tool for all young & old. We need to teach more on just basic ethnics, and I know this is a good tool. The video was in great condition and very resonably priced. Great to keep in your library.
