From the Back Cover:

ìThis is a treasury every child should possess. Great Lessons in Virtue and Character inspires, encourages, touches the heart, and gives fair warning, in a medium that touches the deepest parts of our being. Whenever animals are in the picture, we perceive relationships, motives, and the consequences of behavior in the most remarkable ways. This is certainly something great storytellers, from Aesop to C. S. Lewis, have always understood. And it is this qualityóthe power of illustrationóthat makes William Kilpatrickís wonderful book such a treasure.î

Charles W. Colson Courage, compassion, responsibility, honesty, faithóthese are just some of the characteristics we long to nurture in our children. But how can we teach without preaching? By reading with them the best that childrenís literature has to offer. This unique collection of stories about animals is drawn from classic childrenís favorites such as Black Beauty, Island of the Blue Dolphins, The Horse and His Boy, and Old Yeller. Stories illustrate the virtues and vices that are universal to human nature and inspire the building of strong moral character. Arranged by virtue, these captivating stories are sure to be enjoyed by both the young and the young at heart.
