Immerse yourself in five uplifting bedtime stories for children with Rose Sprinkle's The Little Virtues. Each of these tales comes with lively illustrations and features heroes who face seemingly overwhelming odds they must overcome. Little Brave, a courageous knight, lets go of his fear and gives his all to fight a dragon on behalf of his queen. A little mermaid named Envy overcomes her insecurity and self-doubt with the help of a mysterious mage. A naughty little elf who stole Santa's toys before Christmas learns the value of giving and sharing. After fame, fortune, and beauty fail to plug the hole in Little Love's heart, she unexpectedly finds fulfillment within herself. When her grandmother falls ill, Little Faith must embark on a daring quest to find the magical mountain spring to save her life.

Rose Sprinkle tells five heartwarming stories, each of which highlights a different virtue to live a happy and fulfilling life and make the world a better place. The Little Virtues is a children's picture book with some poignant lessons on life that sometimes even adults need to be reminded of from time to time. These tales feature characters that, at first glance, seem like ordinary people who face their unique challenges in life. But they face their challenges head-on and rise above them through integrity, kindness, and a little bit of courage. Sprinkle uses catchy rhyming verses to engage the young reader with colorful illustrations by Kimberli Johnson, Maryury Rivera, and Crystal Ord, beautifully complementing her storytelling. All in all, this is an inspirational picture book that is also a ton of fun to read.
