Stories from the best-selling The Book of Virtues for a younger audience

The Book of Virtues for Young People is a treasury of timeless stories, poems, and fables selected from William J. Bennett's national best-seller, The Book of Virtues, that teaches young people the importance of incorporating virtues in one's daily life.

The collection, which also includes new material, offers tales of self-discipline from Aesop; poems by Walt Whitman, Rudyard Kipling, Robert Frost, and Emily Dickinson; and fiction by O. Henry, Tolstoy, and Guy de Maupassant. Also included are stories of personal courage and biographies of great people such as Rosa Parks, Abraham Lincoln, and Anne Frank. Like The Book of Virtues, this collection focuses on ten core virtues, from courage and compassion to hard work and self-discipline.

The perfect gift for graduation or other special occasions, The Book of Virtues for Young People belongs on every young person's bookshelf.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Granddaughter therapy.  Jan 10, 2008
This was a Christmas gift to a fourteen year old grand daughter. When I signed the book to her I wrote "don't let the title put you off. The stories are wonderful."
At last contact she was halfway thru the book and loved the stories. If nothing else it will give her another resource for decisions.
Warm and wonderful way to teach values  Dec 12, 2007
Bill Bennett has done it again with The Book of Virtues For Young People. Reading the stories aloud to my children is an excellent way to talk about and open the discussion of the important virtues brought to light in this book. History, fantasy, poetry are all included in this marvelous book. The stories gently lead and guide young minds to WANT to do the right and to understand why. I highly recommend this to parents and children of all ages!
A collection of childrens' stories  May 22, 2007
This is a collection of stories for children that are both entertaining and also introduces them to the world of ethics.
Great Stories  Jan 9, 2007
This book is great for kids 9 and over. I got for my son who is 8 and for his school reading he likes to read those stories. Though he likes to hear the same stories from the younger kids version of the same book when I read to his brother.
A treasure chest of wonderful stories.  Nov 2, 1999
A book of encouraging stories and poems for our young generation to teach them everything from self-discipline, responsibility, honesty, loyalty etc. Read when George Washington was 14 year's old he wrote 110 best ways to act around people, he called it the "Rules of Civility". Read Walt Whitman's ode to Abe Lincoln, and my favourite by Frank Crane, entittled "Boy Wanted". Though the tittle of this book refers "for Young People" I think adults can without a doubt learn as well. I certainly have and I am in my fifth decade of my life.
