The Book of Virtues is a treasury of great moral stories. Responsibility, Courage, Compassion, Loyalty, Honesty, Friendship, Persistence, Hard Work, Self-Discipline, 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 place to find them is in great works of literature and in exemplary stories from history.
In this book, William J. Bennett has collected hundreds of stories in an instructive and inspiring anthology that will help children understand and develop character - help adults teach them. From the Bible: stories of Ruth's loyalty to Naomi and Jonathan's friendship with David. From American history: stories of Booker T. Washington earning his way to an education, Harriet Tubman and the Underground Railroad, Nathan Hale giving his life for his country, and selections by Martin Luther King, Jr., Thomas Jefferson, Abraham Lincoln, and Theodore Roosevelt. Poems from Robert Frost, Emily Dickinson, and Henry Wadsworth Longfellow. Fables from Aesop and stories from Greek mythology. Philosophy from Aristotle and Plato. Fiction from Willa Cather and O. Henry. Fairy tales from the Brother Grimm and Hans Christian Andersen.
The Moral Compass contains Stories for a Life's Journey. It is a companion to The Book of Virtues. It offers many more examples of good and bad, right and wrong, in great works from literature and in exemplary stories from history. Organized by the stages along life's journey, The Moral Compass moves from the first character lessons taught in the home, which shape the way children see life, to the countless choices that call the virtues into play as they grow older. The stories and poems serve as reference points on a moral compass, guiding the reader through the ethical and spiritual challenges along the pathway of life: leaving home, entering into marriage, easing the burdens of others, nurturing one's children, and fulfilling the obligations of citizenship and leadership.
The Moral Compass offers well-known examples from Western history and mythology along with a wider selection of tales and folklore from Asia, Africa, and Latin America. Drawing on familiar authors such as Hans Christian Andersen, Washington Irving, Leo Tolstoy, and John Milton, as well as on intriguing but forgotten tales from centuries past, the stories are literary and evocative, designed to inspire as well as instruct.
|The Tie That Binds. A Collection of Writings about Fathers
& Daughters, Mothers & Sons. There are special bonds that develop
when parents and children are of the opposite gender. The fiction, poetry,
and photographs in this thoughtful collection explore the nature of these
unique relationships, capturing the essence of each stage of life: the magic
of a father bonding with his baby daughter, the frenzied adolescent years,
full of resentment and confusion as mothers and sons do battle, the kinship
as middle-aged daughters and older fathers find common ground, the redefinition
of relationships as parents grow older.

|If I had my life to live over I would pick more daisies. Edited
by Sandra Haldeman Martz. This book illuminates the experiences of women,
young and old, reflecting on the choices they have made. In these stories
and poems we see how women's alternatives are both extended and limited by
personal belief systems, ethnic and cultural identity, class and economic
status, age, and gender. Whether exploring significant public events or small
private choices, these word portraits resonate with authenticity and meaning.
