The perfect companion to William J. Bennett's number-one bestseller; The Book of Virtues, The Children's Book of Virtues is the ideal storybook for parents and children to enjoy together:
With selections from The Book of Virtues, from Aesop and Robert Frost to George Washington's life as well as Native American and African folklore, The Children's Book of Virtues brings together timeless stories and poems from around the world.
The stories have been chosen especially for a young audience to help parents introduce to their children the essentials of good character: Courage, Perseverance, Responsibility, Work, Self-discipline, Compassion, Faith, Honesty, Loyalty, and Friendship.
Lavishly illustrated by the well-known artist Michael Hague, these wonderful stories and the virtues they illustrate come to life on these pages.
The Children's Book of Virtues is an enduring treasury of literature and art that will help lead young minds toward what is noble and gentle and fine.

William J. Bennett served as Director of the Office of National Drug Control Policy under President Bush, and as Secretary of Education and Chairman of the National Endowment for the Humanities under President Reagan. He holds a bachelor of arts degree in philosophy from Williams College, a doctorate in political philosophy from the University of Texas, and a law degree from Harvard. Dr. Bennett is currently a co-director of Empower America, and the John M. Olin Distinguished Fellow in Cultural Policy Studies at the Heritage Foundation. He, his wife, Elayne, and their two sons, John and Joseph, live in Chevy Chase, Maryland.

  • Children's book of virtues

    this book was purchased as a gift for my neice who is 9. She immediately was drawn to it and settled in to work on it. I spent some time going over the messages and reinforcing them, but overall it was a great choice and at the price, money well spent.

    • How did the image on site compare with the actual product? great
    • How accurate was the on site description of the product? good description though could be more about the book
    • Please tell us about the quality of the product. highly recommend for children 8-10
  • Wonderful Baby Gift

    I was given this same book on my daughter's first Christmas. I bought two for my friends who have just had children. I know they will enjoy many nights of bedtime stories with this book of beautiful pictures and inspirational stories.
