Honesty, Trust, Understanding – we all want to teach our kids the rudiments of ethical living. But putting hard to grasp concepts into words that kids can grab hold of is always a challenge.
Enter E is for Ethics: How to Talk to Kids About Morals, Values, and What Matters Most by Ian Corlett, twenty-six wise and whimsical stories of two little kids on a path through the ethical dilemmas of kid-dom.
A father with a background in children’s television, Corlett has created a primer for ethical education that reads like a bedtime story of the best sort – one your kids can get involved in.
Illustrated by R.A. Holt to keep them engaged, the tales of Elliott and Lucy are followed up with questions for your kids regarding the outcome of each story, allowing them to jump in and make their own decisions, develop their own ethical mode of deduction. Based in stories of dollies, puppies and baseball, E is for Ethics offers parents a glimpse of their child’s character and allows them to gently mold it in the right direction.
No surprise, with Corlett’s background as the voice of Baby Taz in Baby Looney Tunes and Mr. Pop in Dragontales, plus his writing and developing of The Adventures of Paddington Bear, Lunar Jim and Rescue Heroes, Elliott and Lucy are slated for the small screen in 2010.
But first, the book, a bed-time reader that will comfort the parents too.
