Item Description...
Fables, folklore, fiction, drama, and other works by such authors as Aesop, Dickens, Tolstoy, Shakespeare, and Baldwin are presented to teach virtues including compassion, courage, honesty, friendship, and faith

Publishers 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.

A book for all parents/mentors  Mar 10, 2008
Every parent and grandparent, every mentor, every Sunday school teacher, every educator should a copy of this book. This should be taught to our children.
Best way to get the point across  Feb 3, 2008
I am 54 years old and was raised in a way that the poetry and stories mean something to me because of the era in which I was raised. Purity was prized, discipline by spanking was administered and appreciated in time because the alternative was much worse, which created self-discipline in most things. Honesty, responsibility, compassion, courage and faith have been lost in the last twenty years with the "me" generations getting everything they want with instant gratification. The children of today are about to come crashing down hard with the realities of life without virtues. It isn't easy. Nothing is free, and Bennett has compiled a tasteful way of learning some of the lessons without experiencing them personally, which I can tell you, my generation has experienced in spades. Sure, he could have put other stories in that could have expressed it differently, but these were the stories that moved him most, and when we write our "Book of Virtues" we can add the stories that mean the most to us. Reading the "American Book of Poetry" is where it started. Keep up the reading. Keep up the digging and striving for the virtues listed in the book. America needs people of virtue, people of honesty, even people of faith, because right now, the selfish "Gen-X" generation and their children are about to get our nation blown up by the very arrogance the British had that said we know better because of who we are and what we know. Sadly, they know nothing. They have no true hardship or challenges that forge the steel in their spines. Most can't even throw a punch, because violence has been bred out of them. Well, wake up, people, the world is violent, the world is harsh and tough, and without the virtues of self-discipline, faith and courage, they won't have the perseverance to survive.
Book  Dec 25, 2007
This book was well received for Christmas by our daughter and son-in-law. May they enjoy it for years to come, now that they have a new little family...Excellent service, by the way, from PAM, at EQUALITYBOOKS. I'll do business there again in the future.
Book of Virtues  Dec 8, 2007
This is at least the 10th copy I have purchased of this exact book.
Great for all ages, especially for us senior citizens that like to get transported back to our school years. Bennett is a fabulous author and I have bough his books of virtues & morality for my kids and grandkids.
I may buy another dozen for gifts in the future.
High Praise for the Book of Virtues  May 12, 2007
This is a must read for every person and a must have for every library. B of V is a book filled with moral lessons that remind us of principles we were taught while growing up. Children and adults can glean from it's wisdom.
