What a lovely and Beautiful book My children loved it and were enchanted by the detailed illustrations. Great buy for anyone interested in teaching children about virtuous qualities! IT is organized by topic, so great for teaching.

William Bennett has written the perfect compliment to his Book of
Virtues. The Children's Book of Virtues is an EXCELLENT compilation
of classic stories and poems that parents can read to their children.
This book is also excellent for beginning readers! I recommend this
book for every family's bookshelf!

As a child, I adored this book, and spent hours poring over the charming stories and beautiful illustrations. Knowing that the tales were compiled by someone distasteful doesn't change how I feel as an adult. Really, this is just a collection of folktales and poems, and it's not diminished at all by the reputation of the editor. Examining this book again now, the only possible criticisms I can think of are that it's too short, and that the reading level may be too advanced for the age group that would enjoy the stories most. Every child is different, though, so of course your mileage may vary.

Apparently William Bennett is unfamiliar with the myriad wonderful books for children written in the last thirty years. The only exception are "famous" people writing now like Barbara Bush. Why not draw on the terrific current literature? My guess is because Bennett would have to pay for that, whereas the older work is in the public domain. What a lost opportunity to speak to kids in terms they can better relate to and to introduce parents to some fine contemporary writers. Of course, this book is actually pitched to parents, not kids, so I doubt appealing to kids is actually his real aim.

We're on our second read through of this book of children's morality tales.
With poems, short homilies and stories, Bill Bennett entertains young children as life's good lessons are imparted. The accompanying illustrations are visually delightful.
Some of the stories, because of word usage, appeal to a slightly older audience than my four and five year olds, but they can appreciate most of the vignettes. A good book that helps parents in childhood instruction.

This is an excellent book to read to your young ones (4+) The stories are old yet the principles are ageless. The children will curl up and live these tales. I find myself truely enjoying this special time. When they get to six or seven I would strongly recommend moving to the Book of Virtues by William J. Bennett. The stories will sweep you and the children away. MY childrens favorite time is reading these stories. They actually ask for the book and seldom does anything else draw such smiles and "Thank You Daddys". Enjoy the experience.

Format: Hardcover
This book is full of short stories from different cultures about various virtues. While every story does not necessarily tell why a specific virtue is important, it mainly gives an example This allows me, a parent of 3 and 5 year olds, and opportunity to express why I think it is important.
The stories are very thought provoking to young minds and my kids even ask questions about it later and imitate some of the humorous parts days later.
Once, my 5-year old related back to me the story of Genghis Khan and his hawk. He compared to an event in his own life.
I also have "The Children's Book of Heroes" and I plan to get my kids "The Children's Book of America" this Christmas.
