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.
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.
The Children's Book of Virtues is a compilation of short stories and poems, many of which I remember from my youth. The book is well organized, with stories/poems grouped by the virtue they represent (courage, perserverence, etc.). So if I want my son to think about a particular virtue, maybe due to what happened that day, I can easily find an appropriate story in this book.
The illustrations are also so well done. They are colorful and expressive, catching my son's attention as I read to him.
Thank you for this book. I hope additional volumes may be developed.
