 ‘Daily Reflections and Stories for Children.'  & From New Zealand BDS
It is compiled by Munirih Hodge and Margo Styan – and the short stories are beautiful – 
19 different ones, all arranged by virtues and spiritual qualities. 
The one we read today, was about two visitors who came to see 
‘Abdu’l-Bahá. They didn’t like each other at all, but ‘Abdu’l-Bahá showed them how to be friends and told them ‘My home is the home of joy and delight. My home is the home of laughter … Whoever enters through the portals of this home must go out with a gladsome heart.”They left the house the best of friends. 


The BIG Bahá’í Activity Book for little Bahá’ís was created with love for the purpose of offering young children a way to communicate their understanding of virtues and Baha'i themes through simple, artistic participation.  The book includes over 60 simple exercises and a 15-page Educator’s Guide to help Parents, Caregivers and Teachers extend the message of the book beyond the page. Each page is meant to prompt discussion, consultation, thought and learning in children.

Mali & Keela   A Virtues book for children

Thirteen adventure stories introduce children to the concept of virtue and demonstrate how virtuous behavior can make the world a better place. Each tale is built around four of the 52 virtues that have been identified by The Virtues Project™, a global grassroots initiative that inspires the practice of virtues in everyday life. The collected stories bring the virtues to life in lively, entertaining adventure tales designed to be read aloud to young listeners. Each tale is followed by clear, age-appropriate definitions of the virtues for the adult reader and the young audience to explore. Discussion questions are also provided to draw the children into a conversation about each story. These interactive tools foster a more profound understanding of the virtues, help children put each virtue into context within their own experiences, and provide a rich environment for learning—while young and old enjoy the thrill of a well-told yarn.
