Webster's warning was given many years ago; times have changed, but not in a Godly manner.The mission of Triangle Press is to furnish concerned parents tools to help teach children the truth. This "Children's Heritage Series" has not been rewritten as the Character Building Series was, but the books are reproduced in their original form; a form which some feel is antiquated. True. However, they represent not only the teachings of Godly principals, but they also represent a piece of our history and heritage. The vocabulary contained in these books is rich and varied; it is a far cry from the usual limited and bland use of words found in much of today's children's literature. Some children may even be challenged to rewrite a story in modern grammar; the stories may also be used as a springboard for family study and discussion. There are many aspects of this "Children's Heritage Series" to be cherished.This book is a compilation of six short stories which will prove to be very informative reading for children. They impress on a child's mind that it is important to obey parents, strive to keep God's commandments, and be ever mindful of their never-dying soul and everlasting eternity.Read of the living faith of two men trapped at sea in a dense fog, the unpleasant results of a disobedient boy, the practical lessons to be learnedfrom God's creation, and the touching stories of young children prepared at an early age to meet death.
