The accompanying leader's guide is directed to educators and parents, and includes activities, questions, reproducible pages, resources, quotations, definitions, and a glossary, all of which reinforce and expand the character lessons. The format of the lessons in the leader's guide closely follows the elements of the chapters in the children's book: (1) reading review, including questions that facilitate a discussion of a character trait; (2) character dilemmas, providing discussion and role-playing ideas; (3) instructions for activities from the children's book; (4) additional group activities not provided in the children's book; (5) resources, including books and organizations of interest; and (6) looking ahead, providing suggestions for checking children's progress, and planning for the next lesson.

What mother doesn't want her son to be respectful? What father doesn't want his daughter to be chaste? While Americans might disagree about a lot of things, it seems we are united by a basic set of socially objective virtues that transcends religious and political differences. We can and should use this common ground to help us reconstruct and solidify our moral foundations. Never before have our young people been fed from such a garbage can of media content: vulgarity, violence, drug and alcohol use, and sexual promiscuity. It's no wonder so many of us are sick. To obtain emotional, social, and spiritual health, we need a model for life that is based on virtue. Building Character One Virtue at a Time contains a treasure trove of inspiring quotes, stories, and essays about 52 unique virtues. Readers will begin to form a more virtuous self image as they identify who they truly are, where they belong, and where they need to go in order to be contributing members of our society and to live fulfilled lives.
