Description:

Compassion, courage, honesty, integrity, loyalty, responsibility, and wisdom are qualities we all admire and desire for our children as well as ourselves. Profiles in Character presents twenty-six inspirational and thoughtful stories illustrating seventeen universally admired virtues. This is a book written for teachers by a teacher. Since each story can be read in five minutes or less and is accompanied by discussion questions and follow-up activities, the stories can be used as brief devotionals or to occupy a full class period. These classroom-tested stories provide enough material to make a substantial contribution to a character education curriculum. Book jacket.
