The origin of New Year’s resolutions does not rest in recent history, even though resolutions are popular in the 21st century. We must travel some 4,000 years backward to find the origin of New Year’s resolutions. There, stepping down from our time machine, we find ourselves in ancient Babylon – the country of origin for New Year’s resolutions.
How did the Babylonians come up with such a practice?
New Year’s resolutions did not originate as promises the people of Babylonia made […]
Monday morning, and hallway noise threatens to blow out your smart phone’s volume meter app. You glance at the clock. Precisely four and a half minutes until that classroom door swings open and that noise surges into the room, sucking you into its agitated vortex.
The mere thought of that cyclone begins to twist you out of shape. You try to smile, but your brain bullies you with an inner vision of yourself veering off into an unending void, tormented forever by raucous, badly behaved problem students.
The door flies open, and you order a smile to perform, but it shows no inclination to obey.

What Customers Say
I was very excited to discover your program. The animals are cute, the lessons well planned. It is exactly what I was looking for to teach character to my children. We love the books and I have already begin recommending them to my friends! Thank you for this awesome opportunity!.
I am particularly impressed with the beauty and richness of the language of your series. Rich, colorful imagery and warmly personalized narrative combine with natural dialogue to engage and delight the reader. … little animal characters romp across the pages with a vibrancy, verve and a level of reflection, easily modeled by young audiences.
I really enjoyed your books and the message they provide students. They can be such a wonderful resource for me in the future. It seems that character education is not being taught at home anymore and it is left up to the schools to implement programs.
I have reviewed many websites and libraries reviewing materials on Character Education. I was really impressed by the information your site had and the material and resources available. I would like to be able to use this information and then promote it to area schools here in our area because like I said, good resources are hard to come by!
I just finished reading the books and they are wonderful. —just what we need for Character Counts! Thanks!
