Seven short stories for young children. Each story presents a moral theme. The stories are taken from the Bible and Rabbinic literature. The "Thinking Thoughts" section at the end of each story presents questions about the story that parents can discuss with their child.

The third in the "7" series. The double spread illustrations and colorful copy pages make the book easy to read and ideal for storytelling by parents and teachers. Because the stories are by theme, parents and teachers find this series a ready reference when they want to get a moral point across to the young child. The "Thinking Thoughts" section helps the child relate the moral message to their everyday life.

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal - School Library Journal
K-Gr 3-An attempt to instill positive character traits in children through fablelike stories. The themes dealt with are teamwork, cooperation, accepting differences, duty, helpfulness, courage, and making choices. The stories themselves, while having a loose Old Testament connection, are not strictly Bible-based. At times, the authors border on trite, e.g., naming the oxen pulling the Ark of the Covenant "Meepul and Yupul" (Making Choices). Cartoon illustrations appear throughout; textless double-page spreads alternate with spot art. Three or four questions at the end of each story help readers identify the major points of the lesson. William Bennett's The Children's Book of Virtues (S & S, 1995) uses existing folk literature and poetry to exemplify similar virtues, but does not have a religious bent. The Bogots' collection would best be used in a parochial setting to reinforce religious teachings.-Mollie Bynum, formerly at Chester Valley Elementary School, Anchorage, AK Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
