About the Stories in The Children’s Character Building Collection
One of the best gifts you could ever give a child are the eleven stories of our renowned, classic 19th century Children’s Character Building Collection. And this new printing of the collection is the highest-quality edition of them ever done. All 11 volumes have beautiful new art, hand-painted covers. This is our all-time favorite set of children’s stories from last century, and all with fresh artwork that captures the feel of that era!
Each of these delightful volumes is full of Biblical truth, presented in the most winsome possible stories, sure to warm the heart and teach the mind of every family member. The reading level for this set is often said to be 4th – 5th grade, but we find children of all ages enjoy them, and even adults often tell us they find them delightful to read. Check each of the books in this area of the site, for its own full description. They make wonderful read-alouds to children from K through 3rd grade too.
Also – now with an accompanying study guide!
Dennis Gundersen has composed a Study Guide for the set of stories! Not meant as a quiz or test, The Children’s Character Building Collection Study Guide is rather a tool by which parents and children can sit down together and gain maximum profit from the stories, conversing together about the key elements of the stories in a way which will be enjoyable, memorable, and spiritually profitable.
