Come explore our character-building activities book! We designed it for your entire family to enjoy. Young children will love coloring the charming pictures of animals and the use of alliterative virtue and animal names to illustrate positive behavior. They will meet compassionate cows, loving lions, patient peacocks and many more friendly animals. Parents will appreciate the guided activities they can do along with their early-readers. Older children will spend hours exploring the word searches and mazes, reading about how different virtues can make them happier, and answering thought-provoking questions about the things they like and the people they know.
Scattered throughout these pages you will also find fun facts about animals, song suggestions to brighten your day, letters to unscramble, and hundreds of fascinating quotations from famous (and not so famous) people sharing their insights into the meaning and value of different character strengths.
This is an activities book you will want to come back to day after day, week after week, and even year after year. Every time you flip through its pages you will discover something new to think about and explore.
Note to Parents:
We encourage you to spend a few minutes looking through the activities with your child. The age-appropriateness of the activities ranges from very young for the coloring pages, and mid-elementary school for the word searches and mazes, all the way up to pre-teen for some quotations and activities. Many challenging activities can be made easier if done alongside an adult. Offering to read definitions and quotations, or joining in on the word searches will increase your children’s enjoyment.
For older kids, we suggest that you encourage them to pick and choose activities that catch they eye rather than starting at the beginning and working their way through. Maybe they will start with fun animal facts, a maze, or the list of playful jokes. Others will be inspired to write a thank-you note to someone who did something nice for them, or answer a deep personal question. There is no wrong way to do these activities. It would bring joy to our hearts to discover that a child did a few activities at a time over the course of many years.
