Tending the Heart of Virtue: How Classic Stories Awaken a Child’s Moral Imagination
From Pinocchio to The Chronicles of Narnia to Charlotte’s Web, classic children’s tales have shaped generations of young people. In recent years, homeschoolers and classical schools have put these masterpieces of children’s literature at the center of their curricula. And everywhere, parents, students, and educators alike continue to embrace these stories.
For more than two decades Tending the Heart of Virtue has been embraced by parents, guardians, and teachers for whom the stories it discusses are not only beloved classics but repositories of moral wisdom. This revised and expanded second edition includes three new chapters in which Guroian interprets such stories as Hans Christian Andersen’s The Ugly Duckling, the Grimms’ Cinderella, and John Ruskin’s The King of the Golden River.
