William Bennett and Michael Hague, the team that brought us the national bestseller The Children's Book of Virtues, have once again collaborated to create The Children's Book of Heroes, a beautifully illustrated celebration of heroic deeds, both real and fictional, that will delight and inspire millions of young children and their parents. "We all need a hero or two to help us stand fast and think right," says William J. Bennett, author of The Book of Virtues, the #1 bestseller that millions of American families turn to for moral inspiration. With excerpts chosen for young children, this new treasury presents splendid tales of the valor and indomitable spirit that are a lasting testament to our cherished values. Jackie Robinson stands fast on the playing field -- and his strength of character inspires a nation. David slays Goliath -- and his faith and bravery give hope to underdogs everywhere. A little boy goes in search of an angel -- and finds one who guards him day and night: his own mother. From Abraham Lincoln and Mother Teresa to warriors on the battlefield, real moms and dads, and even young girls and boys, here are worthy and heroic figures all kids can look up to and emulate. The Children's Book of Heroes is a celebration of the endurance, sacrifice, courage, and compassion that characterize truly heroic deeds.

Die Bekenntnisse eines Gentlemans Gibt es ein abschreckenderes Beispiel für junge Bildungsreisende als Sir Henry Montague? Nach Montys Cavaliersreise wird der englische Adel seine Sprösslinge bestimmt nie wieder auf den Kontinent schicken. Irgendwie ist er immer in eine Tändelei verwickelt. Oder betrunken. Oder zur falschen Zeit am falschen Ort. Nackt! Kein gutes Vorbild für seine Reisegefährten, weder für seine kleine Schwester Felicity, noch für seinen Jugendfreund Percy. Doch Monty will keinen Augenblick vergeuden, denn bald heißt es zurück zum gestrengen Herrn Vater und die Standespflichten wahrnehmen. Montys Unbesonnenheit aber bringt sie alle in unvorhergesehene Schwierigkeit und bald sind Wegelagerer und Piraten sein geringstes Problem. Nicht zuletzt seine unausgesprochene und unerfüllte Liebe zu Percy. Noch nie war das 18. Jahrhundert so geistreich, verwegen und charmant.

Wie es zugeht unter Leuten, die sich gernhaben, aber in schwierigen Zeiten leben. Diese Texte gehören zum Persönlichsten, was Natalia Ginzburg je geschrieben hat: Die Autorin hat sie unverändert und unkorrigiert in diesem Band zusammengestellt, der so die Entwicklung ihres Stils zeigt und durch für sie prägende Lebenssituationen und -erfahrungen führt: die Verbannung in das abruzzesische Bergdorf, die mit der Ermordung ihres Mannes Leone durch die Nazis in Rom endet; die verzweifelte Zeit nach der Befreiung, ihre Freundschaft zu Cesare Pavese, wie Leone Ginzburg Mitbegründer des Turiner Einaudi Verlags; ihr Leben mit dem Anglistikprofessor Gabriel Baldini und ihre Zeit mit ihm in England. Die elf Erzählungen und autobiografischen Betrachtungen aus den Jahren 1945 bis 1961, die in Italien unter dem Titel »Le piccole virtù« 1962 erschienen.

This unique book gives Christian parents a new resource for teaching morals and virtues to their children and young adults. The cool and unique feature of this book is that the moral lessons of the Bible are collected and presented by topic or subject. More than twenty topics such as honesty, justice, forgiveness, modesty, and service are discussed. Each lesson can be covered in about fifteen minutes. Illustrated Bible stories, parables, and folk stories from around the world are used to keep things interesting and to make the topics come to life. More than one hundred illustrations accompany the text. This book is much more than just a collection of stories. Instead, the stories follow an introduction of the topic and the stories serve to illustrate the points of the topic. Each story has a message and the moral of each story is discussed. To engage the readers, discussion questions follow each chapter. The chapters end with a suggested prayer. There is no job more important than parenting. But parenting takes a lot of work and a lot of time. It can be especially tough to teach life lessons to children. The good news is that this book of lessons gives you a nicely organized resource to make the teaching job easier. Although young adults can read this book on their own, this book is really intended to be read together as a family. In reading together, the messages are strengthened, shared, and commonly understood. Hopefully, the lessons will serve as a family "code of conduct" and set of values. Although many of the stories in this book could be enjoyed by toddlers, this book is really targeted at older children in the approximate age range of 7 to 15 years. There are many moral story books for kids that contain collections of timeless stories and poems that have important lessons. Of course, the most popular ever is Aesop's Fables, which contains stories like The Tortoise and the Hare. A popular story collection book is William Bennett's book, The Children's Book of Virtues, which is a nice collection of stories and poems from around the world. The color illustrations are beautiful. I read this book to my children and it is fully suitable for toddlers and older children. This book, Lessons in Morals and Virtues, differs from the "story collection" books in several ways. Story collection books are just that - story collections - and they are usually free of commentary or story analysis. Most do not use religious material or make reference to the Bible or God. So, story collection books usually do not talk about New Testament teachings such as forgiveness, loving your neighbor, or "doing unto others." This book contains lessons primarily and stories secondarily. The stories bring to life the points of the lessons. Further, the stories are discussed. This book is certainly a religious book. Bible stories are often used and Bible teachings are paramount. As the saying goes, "necessity is the mother of invention." The author wrote this book because he was looking for a book, arranged by topic, which taught the main lessons of the New Testament. Not finding such a book led to the development of this book. Of course the Bible contains the lessons. The problem is that the Bible is not arranged by lesson topic, rather it chronicles periods and events. So, if you want to learn about a topic such as jealousy, arrogance, or forgiveness, you have to dig around or use some other Bible reference guide. Parents get started right away. The lessons are here for you!

»Ich bin einer von ungezählten Millionen, die durch Nelson Mandelas Leben inspiriert wurden.« Barack Obama Eine fast drei Jahrzehnte währende Gefängnishaft ließ Nelson Mandela zum Mythos der schwarzen Befreiungsbewegung werden. Kaum ein anderer Politiker unserer Zeit symbolisiert heute in solchem Maße die Friedenshoffnungen der Menschheit und den Gedanken der Aussöhnung aller Rassen wie der ehemalige südafrikanische Präsident und Friedensnobelpreisträger. Auch nach seinem Tod finden seine ungebrochene Charakterstärke und Menschenfreundlichkeit die Bewunderung aller friedenswilligen Menschen auf der Welt. Mandelas Lebensgeschichte ist über die politische Bedeutung hinaus ein spannend zu lesendes, kenntnis- und faktenreiches Dokument menschlicher Entwicklung unter Bedingungen und Fährnissen, vor denen die meisten Menschen innerlich wie äußerlich kapituliert haben dürften.

Eine Frau hat ihren Mann ermordet und erzählt, wie es dazu kam, kommen musste. Die lakonisch erzählte Geschichte einer klassischen Dreierbeziehung: Liebe, Leidenschaft, Verzweiflung, Eifersucht – und am Ende ein tödlicher Schuss. Mit diesem von Italo Calvino enthusiastisch begrüßten Roman erlebte Ginzburg, die zu den bedeutendsten modernen Autoren Italiens zählt, ihren literarischen Durchbruch.
