Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Drawn from the Bible and Homer, from the legends of cultures throughout the world, from plenty of Victorian writers, and from the popular magazines of the pre–World War II era, the selections are uniformly readable, definitely and honorably moral, as promised.” Booklist
“Believing that learning to be virtuous is a lifelong journey, Bennett has provided a kind of moral travel guide and map through each territory—childhood, adolescence, adulthood—along the way.” Library Journal
“A colorful patchwork of pieces that are irresistible for bedtime reading aloud and as spurs to family discussions.” Kirkus Reviews
