My latest book, Everyday Virtues: Classic Tales to Read with Kids, was
co-authored with my son, Rick.
How Better to teach "kind-hearted virtues" than through the oldest and most enduring teaching tools know to humankind: stories.
Though our world has developed many technical means to tell stories, there is no better way in the world to reach the imaginations of children than through the voice of a respected and beloved adult. And, frankly, there is no better way for that adult to connect with the child than by reading a story.
A collection of stories gleaned from the world's folk tale traditions, the book is divided into six virtues - compassion, justice, respect, humility, freedom, and courage.
"This book is intended to give parents, grandparents, and other caregivers a valuable tool in luring kids, even for a short while, away from their digital obsessions" - co-author, Rick Autry.
