"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 share or say 'thank you' and 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.

With imaginative illustrations that give concrete, immediate examples of the seven ?deadly? sins, this book explains how Pride, Greed, Envy, Anger, Lust, Gluttony and Sloth can make us very lonely people. Then it offers the cure, the four cardinal and three theological virtuesÔÇöPrudence, Justice, Courage, Temperance, Faith, Hope and CharityÔÇöthat can mend relationships and rebuild what sin has broken.

Beyond the tired preaching and moralising 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.
