Item description for Seven Lonely Places, Seven Warm Places: The Vices and Virtues for Children by April Bolton & Brent Beck...
Overview "Sin is lonely. And children understand 'lonely.' Sin puts us in places where we are alone and where we don't want to be. Virtue is warm. And children understand being warm, feeling love and feeling loved. We all know the warm feeling we have when something we have done or said makes another person feel good." -From the Introduction Virtue and vice are hard to explain, especially to little ones who always ask why they must not be angry or eat all the cookies. When "because I said so" is no longer enough, it is time for Seven Lonely Places, Seven Warm Places. Beyond the tired preaching and moralizing that are part of every parent's day, offer your child the warmth of virtue, with this gentle, charming book, and revisit for yourself that virtuous feeling of loving and being loved.

Handles Moral Issues with Charm and Humor Mar 11, 2003
It's a delightful book. In a publishing area that is often glutted with trivia, it is refreshing to find a book for children that says something significant in an entertaining and significant way.
Through amazingly creative pictures and text, this book entertains and enlightens children about important moral issues. Without lecturing or preaching, it demonstrates with easily understood situations and examples how seven dark and lonely places can be transformed into Seven Warm Places filled with Light, Beauty, Happiness, and Love. The bright, funny illustrations and the creative use of text further enhance the content. I highly recommend this book to parents, to teachers and to children of all ages.
