Virtue: a short story about finding kindness will help elementary and middle school scholars as well as God's children of all ages and from all walks of life to become skilled in recognizing kindnesses. Virtue is useful for elementary and middle school teachers, parents, and Pediatric Health professionals who want their children to learn sensitivity in looking for good in diverse situations, finding kindnesses both small and great, and showing kindness to others. "Do unto others as you would have them to do unto you." This old adage and key of kindness permeates throughout this witty and adventurous short story that teaches about finding kindnesses that are not seemingly obvious and apparent, especially in the eyes of a youngster. After treating her 8-year old little brother Jonah with contempt, 12 year old Josianna characterizes Him as a "Deplorable little brother; a bothersome little terror!" That is, until she loses her mother's keys and goes on a solitary yet adventurous investigation retracing her steps from the day before. On her pursuit to find her mother's lost keys, Josianna finds that she is treated in the same manner she treated her little brother, like a deplorable bothersome little terror. From Mr. Rogers Ice Cream Parlor, to Susan's Mother's job at the Bakery to Mrs. McMatthew's front yard, Josianna learns to appreciate and show kindness to all people, especially her family. Comprehensive, with review questions and possible answers at the end of each Chapter, Virtue helps youngsters to acquire sensitivity to treating others, especially siblings with kindness, respect, and appreciation, even in spite of being wronged.
