Adventures from the Book of Virtues - Adventures in Courage

It is never a bad thing to raise moral children.  Being a good person is always a positive thing.  Now there is a new tool available to help make that happen for your children.

Starting this August 12th, now available on DVD from Porchlight Home Entertainment and Porchlight Inspire comes an acclaimed PBS children’s series based on a bestselling book. Based on Bill Bennet’s The Book Of Virtues, Adventures From The Book Of Virtues – Adventures In Courage is ready to help make your children’s lives better.  Bring home this life-changing television show today!

This series is told through the eyes of two children, Zach and Annie and their animal friends who read to them from the book.  The stories included in the three shows which are a part of this DVD are the tale of Icarus and Daedalus, King Alfred and the cakes, the legend of William Tell, the mythology of the Minotaur, the mythology of Ulysses and the Cyclops, and the story of Scarface.

The special feature included in this DVD is an optional Spanish audio track.

For this series, the animation is pretty good and the stories are good ones too.  The greatest problem I have with this series is that it is something coming from a conservative viewpoint.  That in and of itself is not necessarily a bad thing, but it does mean that it cleaves to absolutes, the world of the black and the white.  Admittedly, children do deal better with absolutes and they have to start somewhere, but once they become old enough to really think for themselves, that viewpoint is something which needs unlearning.  Nonetheless, this series provides a vital tool for parents.

These Adventures will entertain your children and help them become better people at the same time.
