Introduction from the Book

The following stories, rhymes, and vignettes will expose your child to the ideas of pride, dignity, and respect. These three important qualities are learned from role models and personal experiences. Share with your children the idea that they should always be proud of who and what they are. Pride is developed through positive behavior and good choices in life. When children are proud of who and what they are, they will develop dignity. Dignity is that quality that helps develop a child’s self-worth. Dignity will help your child to do his very best. Pride and dignity help to develop a healthy self-esteem. Respect is earned. When your child has mastered the art of etiquette, basic manners, treating others with respect, and being mindful of others’ feelings, then he too can expect to be treated with common decency and respect.

Enjoy these stories with your children. Read and reread them together. You are giving them a great gift—a gift that will benefit them for the rest of their lives.
