With selections 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, written by William J. Bennette is dedicated to teaching children about virtues such as courage, perseverance, loyalty, and faith. I thought the content is noteworthy as it focuses on character building. These virtues establish family norms in society and help citizens gain the social respect of their peers. It promotes civil obedience and the responsibilities that citizens have to themselves and to their fellow citizens. For example, the poem on “Kindness to Animals” promotes the rights of animals as it teaches children to consider all creatures as members of a world that we share. The poem teaches children to be kind to all living creatures. I particularly liked the fact that it incorporated different faiths. “The Sermon to the Birds” is about the Catholic Italian St. Francis, “The Honest Disciple” is a Jewish folktake. I particularly enjoyed “A Child’s Prayer” since I thought parents could use it to teach little children to pray before they go to sleep at night. Religious schools maybe particularly interested in this volume. I also thought the art work was a great asset to the content. The colors are traditional pastels, and there is innocence to the caricatures displayed.

No book collection would be complete without The Children's Book of Virtues (and poems) illustrated for younger children. Included are The Pasture, by Robert Frost, Over in the Meadow, by Olive Wadsworth, and God Make My Life a Little Light by M. Edwardsthat. Children will identify with these moral stories of truth and compassion. ( )

This children's edition of the classic Book of Virtues offers a wide variety of writing that is perfect for reading aloud to children. The illustrations in this collection are phenomenal, and the different types of writing in this collection will allow children to think about what it means to be virtuous. ( )

Using portions of his best-selling adult work Book of Virtues, former secretary of education William Bennett teams up with artist Michael Hague to create a collection of stories, poems, and fables in a format more suitable for children. Noting in his introduction that his goal is to further the "moral education of the young," Bennett has chosen selections to illustrate 10 virtues, which he further divides into four groups, among them, courage/perseverance and compassion/faith. Many selections, such as the Aesop fables, are easily found elsewhere, but Bennett has also included some full-length versions of poems and tales known only vaguely today. A few selections seem badly dated or unbearably heavy-handed (for example, the story of the boy whose "please" didn't get enough fresh air so it ran away to another boy's mouth), and the apocryphal tale of George Washington and the cherry tree should have been labeled as such. Hague's plentiful artwork adds enormously to the charm of the collection. In keeping with each selection, his style ranges widely, from the comical to the lushly romantic and sweetly old-fashioned.
