In those hasty moments when a child can no longer stand the insanity of the grown-up world and the only way to properly react is to cry, there is nothing like a good story to help wind them back in.
Stories bring us together. These days, families fall apart because they lack a common story. Nation rises up against nation because we've traded shared stories for individual ideals. What is the antidote for the decay and erosion of our society? What is the cure for the sickness and separation of our day? Whatever it is, it starts in the home and it may be as simple as a circle of friends telling tales. Let us come on our knees like children, sit at the feet of our Master, and listen as he tells us a story . . .
This collection is for anyone who is a child: fifty-one tales in all, written with brevity in the interest of short attention spans, yet didactic in that each contains a moral center. While they are geared towards both younger children and teenagers, parents and educators may find themselves awakening as they read, leaving them to wonder, "Who is the child? And who is the Teacher?"
