Virtue? What's that? And where can I find it?
On a trip to see his granddad, ten year old Jack falls asleep while his dad explains virtue. Suddenly he wakes up on a Circus Train! Led through each fantastical train car by the Ringleader, Reno, Jack comes face to face with a huge lion, flying flame torches, a silly juggler, daring tightrope walker and other memorable circus performers who have spent years cultivating a particular virtue for their acts! Jack and the Fantastical Circus shows children that virtue is ultimately found inside of each and everyone of us, but it takes practice and dedication to grow them for our different walks of life.
Authors Ariel and Michael Tyson explain, "Virtue is something within you, but it's like a muscle. You have to keep practicing it to help it grow strong. We want to teach kids this by showing them the distinct characters of the book and how they relate to areas where they may need to grow in their own lives."
Jack and the Fantastical Circus will encourage children to explore their imaginations, learn critical lessons, and strive for virtue in themselves. It should also inspire meaningful conversations between parents and children about the importance of virtue.
