“2010 Mom’s Choice Gold Medal Winner!”
A Virtues Book for Children
Written by Jonathan Collins; Illustrations by Jenny Cooper
As Mali, Keela, and Bongo sail the South Seas from Banana Island to Glow-Worm Cave, caring, trust, determination, and peacefulness are just a few of the many virtues they explore along the way.
This collection of thirteen beautifully crafted adventure stories captivates the imagination while inspiring children to discover the best within themselves. Each story visits four virtues, so that by the time our heroes sail home at the end of the book, fifty two virtues have been explored.
At the end of each story an interactive section contains age appropriate definitions of the virtues featured in the story in addition to well crafted discussion questions. This area stimulates discussion and helps adults and children alike find the meaning and the magic of the virtues in their own lives. The index at the back of the book is especially helpful to locate a particular virtue that would be applicable in a challenging situation.
The Adventures of Mali & Keela is a Gold Medal recipient of The Mom’s Choice Awards. This award program recognizes authors and companies for their efforts in creating quality family-friendly media, products and services.
The book has received enthusiastic praise from parents and educators alike, with the Walt Disney Outstanding Elementary School Teacher of the Year laureate, Dara Feldman, referring to it as “an inspiring, creative and engaging book where life lessons and heart-warming stories come together.”
