New Moral Children's Books
Using Stories to Teach Your Children Giving
Nowadays, too many children aren't taught moral values. They think what they need is more important than what others need and they will hurt other people to get what they want.
I've always thought it's important to teach our children the values that will help them in this world. Helping others is good for everyone. During the "Katrina" crises in New Orleans, many New Yorkers went down to Louisiana and helped. So, when Sandy hit hard in New York and New Jersey, the people from Louisiana remembered that New Yorkers helped them and came up to help in New York.
Giving is an important value to give to our children. These books help teach children morality.
The Princess Who Wanted to be Beautiful
One of my first short stories, "The Princess Who Wanted to be Beautiful" started out as a bedtime story for the children of a close friend. I had been worrying about the "Disney Syndrome" whereby all the heroes are beautiful and all the ugly people are villains. This is a story about a princess who has heard that all princesses are beautiful and doesn't think she is beautiful. She decides to go to a wizard and ask him to make her beautiful but along the way she makes some friends and learns a lesson about herself.
The Gold Star
Another of my short stories, "The Gold Star" is now available in illustrated form. The story is about a young boy named Shmuel who helps a poor man without the man knowing.
