An exciting and colorfully illustrated kids’ character book by Marilyn Boyer! Sure to be a hit with both moms and children, it teaches the essential character qualities of attentiveness, boldness, decisiveness, joyfulness, flexibility, availability, generosity, courage, orderliness, endurance, thoroughness, and compassion. Recommended for use with children ages 6-12.
Practical hands-on projects make learning come alive. Interesting “application questions” make it easy for you and your child to apply lessons to real life situations!
You will meet a wide variety of worthy heroes including General Douglas MacArthur, blind hymn writer Fanny Crosby – even a canine hero, Balto the sled dog who saved Nome from the plague by carrying the vaccine through an impossible blizzard! Each character quality is illustrated by someone in history, Scripture and everyday life stories. And it all come to life through the eyes of “the cousins” of the Boyer family, as a series of charming photos illustrate stories throughout the book.
