Publisher's Description

Responsibility. Courage. Compassion. Honesty. Friendship. Persistence. Faith. Everyone recognizes these traits as essentials of good character. In order for our children to develop such traits, we have to offer them examples of good and bad, right and wrong. And the best places to find them are in great works of literature and exemplary stories from history.

William J. Bennett has collected hundreds of stories in The Book of Virtues, an instructive and inspiring anthology that will help children understand and develop character -- and help adults teach them. From the Bible to American history, from Greek mythology to English poetry, from fairy tales to modern fiction, these stories are a rich mine of moral literacy, a reliable moral reference point that will help anchor our children and ourselves in our culture, our history, and our traditions -- the sources of the ideals by which we wish to live our lives. Complete with instructive introductions and notes, The Book of Virtues is a book the whole family can read and enjoy -- and learn from -- together.

    This review was written for The Book of Virtues.
    Every human whether Christian or not should have this book and read it, and reread it. Our children were raised hearing the stories from Bennet's Children's Book of Virtues at bedtime. We purchased this copy for our youngest daughter's upcoming 16th birthday. A tool that we pray she will use and cherish for many years to come.

    This review was written for The Book of Virtues.
    This book is perfect for character training of our children! I've used this book as a read-aloud, for illustrating a point, history and literature studies as well as poetry (reciting and memorization). Every home schooler should have this book and use it!
