Synopsis

The Book of Virtues for Boys and Girls A Treasury of Great Moral Stories by Doug Flutie

This exciting collection of fables, folktales, and poems, collected by William J. Bennett, illustrates some of the best human values: courage, honesty, work, friendship, and loyalty. With writings by great authors -- among them Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, Anne Frank, Horatio Alger, Helen Keller, and Aesop -- these works, some old and some new, will always have great meaning for young people as they make their way through life.

He holds a bachelor of arts degree in philosophy from Williams College, a doctorate in political philosophy from the University of Texas, and a law degree from Harvard. He is the author of such bestselling books as The Educated Child, The Death of Outrage, The Book of Virtues, and the two-volume series America: The Last Best Hope.
