UNCLE ARTHUR'S BEDTIME STORIES
Building character in children is the #1 priority for most parents. These Bedtime Stories have been in circulation since 1927 and are the top selling books in the history of children's publishing.
These true stories deal with recurring issues in raising a family, like the little boy who always wanted to eat the biggest and best for himself. Mother had to correct this ongoing problem.
... Or the little boy who went into the store with grandma. While she was paying for the goods, Peter was hungry and helping himself. Of course, he couldn't fool grandma and she taught her grandson that you can't take things that belong to other people. There were tears involved as Peter had to learn the lesson "Thou shalt not steal" as he went back to pay for what he had taken. He was rewarded with a big jelly donut for being an honest boy.
Then there was little Caroline who had two faces ... a happy one when mother was sending her off to school and a miserable one upon her return. Children love these stories because they can imediately relate to these situations. It's much more effective to point out faults in the lives of others where children can see it so clearly rather than pounce on them for their own shortcomings.
