Publisher's Summary

"Children don't fail, the adults around them do - and it is up to us to light the candle of excellence within each one we know and love," begins Marva Collins, one of America's foremost educators, in her important work, Values. This practical guide is for those of us who strive to be role models, who want to know the important values, live them, and teach them to our children. In the tradition of recent best sellers by Marion Wright Edelman and Hillary Clinton, Collins provides dozens of games, exercises, poems, and daily proverbs to help encourage in our families values such as kindness, courage, determination, faith, confidence, and responsibility. Taken from her superbly effective teaching and inspirational methods, these techniques are essential if both we and our children are to lead successful and meaningful lives.

Most valuable audiobook for any parent

This is an absolute must read for any parent. Marva's style is awe inspiring. Wish I could have heard this audio before my first child went to 1st grade.

I feel blessed and full of gratitude to know that we have someone of such great calibre to take us and our children to the next level of our excellence.
