DESCRIPTION These days, there is a lot of talk about the prevalence of “wimpy” kids in the world. Indeed, in many ways, being wimpy is now seen as funny ... or should we dare say, even cool?

Indeed, in many ways, being wimpy is now seen as funny ... or should we dare say, even cool? If we go back just one or two generations ago, however, the last thing parents wanted was their children to be perceived as "wimpy". And so, mothers and fathers would spend many an evening hour reading stories to their children on exactly how not to become a strong teens and adults. These stories, often by such classic authors as Charles Dickens, Hans Christian Andersen or Louisa May Alcott, were designed to both entertain but also to teach how to build character. These stories were filled with, in our modern parlance, plenty of “teachable moments.” They allowed for great moments of family discussions on both good values and good deeds and also, on how to make the right choices regardless of setting or circumstance. This “diary” is devoted to a choice collection of the sestandard and new fairy-tales, wonder stories, and fables. The value of the of these stories is that they tell about the magic of living. Like the old woman in Mother Goose, they “brush the cobwebs out of the sky.” They enrich, not cheapen, life. Plenty of things do cheapen life for children. Most movies do. So does television, violent video games and music. So does family strife, bullying and even mere gossip. But these stories enhance life. They consist of fancies that have illumined the hard facts of life. They find animals, trees, flowers, and the stars friendly. They speak of victory. In them the child is master even of dragons. He can live like a prince, in disguise, or, if he be uncomely, he may hope to win Beauty after he is free of his masquerade. These stories help make good children as well as happy children. In these stories witches, wolves, and evil persons are defeated or exposed. Fairy godmothers are ministers of justice. The side that the child wishes to triumph always does triumph, and so goodness always is made to seem worth-while. Almost every story contains a test of character or shrewdness or courage. Sharp distinctions are made, that require a child of parts to discern. And the heroes of these stories are much more convincing than precepts or golden texts, for they impress upon the child not merely what he ought to do, but what nobly has been done. The fables in this collection do much same, and by imagining that the animals have arrived at human speech and wisdom, they help the child to think shrewdly and in a friendly way, as if in comradeship with his pets and with our brothers and sisters, the beasts of the field and forest. And the small hero-worshiper will follow where his admirations lead. An outstanding volume and a perfect gift, likely to be treasured for years and decades to come. Ideal for all children and adults who do not want to become wimpy kids. THIS BOOK IS NOT AFFILIATED WITH THE DIARY OF A WIMPY KID SERIES OF BOOKS, ABRAMS, JEFF KINNEY, OR WIMPY KID, INC.
