Core Virtues is terrific. It provides a clear and practical over view of character education, explaining what it is, how to do it, and why it is important.
Core Virtues does not advocate a heavy-handed approach to character education. Rather it provides children with a clear, age-appropriate definition of what the different virtues are, and then illustrates them with well-written and -illustrated children's books. The goal is to win over not only childrens' minds, but their hearts-- to help them truly want to be good and do what is right, even in difficult circumstances. Great civilizations of the past discovered that terrific stories are one of the most valuable tools for passing on the values and morals of a culture, and Core Virtues proceeds from the same premise.
It is an excellent resource for parents, teachers and homeschoolers. I highly recommend it.

Have you noticed children do not have the same values they use to? Does your classroom or family need help `recognizing' good values without hammering on them daily? Core Virtues is a wonderful resource for teachers, parents and home-schooling families alike! Mary Beth Klee provides a great overview which defines character education, why it's important, and how we, as adults, can help teach these `virtues' to children in our daily routines.
The book is well-organized and easy to use for quick research. Each month focuses on a new virtue and provides wonderful lists of great contemporary children's literature, organized by grade level, to gently emphasize each one.
Core Virtues also ties nicely into E.D. Hirsch's Core Knowledge movement, and is a great all-around resource! I highly recommend this book.
