Pass on timeless stories and instill virtue and character in young Americans with the “Classic Children’s Literature” course DVD.
Great children’s literature delights the reader. Through classic tales of adventure and friendship, young people learn timeless truths about the world and how best to live.
Yet books like these are rare and hard to write, and the best of them are revised or largely ignored in most of today’s schools.
One reason for this is a misunderstanding of how education works.
It is common today to think that education is something done to children. As a result, today’s popular books are often preachy and boring. They often provide distorted views of reality, and in the worst cases, they can do real harm.
The recovery of the right kind of children’s literature is essential to the preservation of self-government. The reason? It helps form young people’s understanding of the world and the right way to live.
