I love to find books that are fun and reinforce virtues! We found Seven Loaves of Bread at our library. This lively tale illustrates the importance of doing a job well the first time. It fits in nicely with a study of the virtue of work.
Down on the farm, Milly bakes seven loaves of bread every morning, distributing them among animals, neighbors and friends, and saving the last loaf for sister Rose. But their pleasant domestic routine is disrupted when Milly takes sick and Rose, "who didn't like to work any harder than she had to," grudgingly takes over the baking, with comically disastrous consequences. The indolent Rose first bakes six loaves, then five, and so on, with the result that a succession of hungry animals wreaks havoc in the garden and an elderly neighbor goes without bread. Only when Rose learns the true value of Milly's wisdom--"It's as easy to make seven as it is to make one"--is she able to restore order.
