Publisher's Summary

A special audio presentation of the magnificent number-one New York Times best-seller, featuring William J. Bennett, Elayne Bennett, Charlton Heston, Dana Ivey, Joe Morton, Tonya Pinkins, Faith Prince, Tom Selleck, Harriet Walter, Fritz Weaver, and Michael York.

This is an audio program for the whole family.

Responsibility. Courage. Compassion. Loyalty. Honesty. Friendship. Persistence. Hard Work. Self-Discipline. Faith. Everyone recognizes these traits as essentials of good character. In order for our children to develop such traits, we have to offer them examples of good and bad, right and wrong. And the best place to find them is in great works of literature and in exemplary stories from history.

A rich mine of moral literacy and a reliable moral reference point, these stories will help anchor our children and ourselves in our culture, our history, and our traditions.

    "Absolutely outstanding"

    This is the best audiobook I've ever listened to. William Bennett comments to adults in between the selections. Those are outstanding. Those are aimed primarily at children, but as I listened to them, I felt they were picked out just for me, here in my middle-age. I found great comfort in them.

    There are more narrators than listed above, and they're all outstanding. Sorry to use the same adjective over and over, but it just applies.

    Story
    "Not what I expected ... boring"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    I got this for my kids, ages 9 and 7. They are short stories that are rather boring for a kid. Listening to Charlston Heston read the Ten Commandments is not the type of story I was hoping my kids would be inspired by. While the readings are good, it simply did not hold the interesest of my kids.
