E is for Ethics

I thought I would share this awesome book
I discovered at the bookfair which is at my school this week. 
 I.LOVE.THE.BOOKFAIR.


One of the reviews I read describes the book's contents and purpose:

"This slim (just over 100 page) book contains 26 stories on a variety of moral issues, including honesty, tact, loyalty, integrity and responsibility. Each story runs less than 2 pages, and presents the main character in a situation where s/he is in a moral quandary -- followed by a "what should the main character do now?" Then there are three or four follow-up questions, and two relevant quotations. It also includes one colorful, cartoonish illustration per story, which are appealing to the young reader."


It's a great way to discuss important issues with your kids such as honesty, perseverance, loyalty, kindness, trust, empathy, charity, responsibility and more.  Good stuff for children to learn about in this crazy, materialistic world full of hate, betrayal, instability and all that other.....crap.  It can be a scary place out there for our little ones, so I'm all about equipping them with ways to make good choices! 

As the review said, there are 26 stories, so my plan is for Ryan and I to read one short chapter with the boys, probably on Thursday nights when we're all together, and give them a chance to share their thoughts or ask any questions they may have.

Happy Wednesday!

That looks like a great book. Does it have an age on it? I guess I could look it up on Amazon. Avery's preschool class is talking about feelings and this would work will with it. Thanks for the recommendation!

Thanks SO much for the kind words. I love hearing "real world" examples of families using the book. Please tell your friends! (I guess you've already told the world through you blog, so I'm just being greedy!) But seriously, word-of-mouth (or blog) is about all we have for this little project and I just hope as many families can enjoy it as possible. It really works doesn't it?

Thanks again,
IAN
