Of the first two volumes of Robert Coles's trilogy, "The Inner Lives of Children, " the "New York Times Book Review" said, "There is no one more interested in what children say, sing, don't say or don't sing - and why - than Robert Coles. He is to the stories that children have to tell what Homer was to the tale of the Trojan War. And in more ways than one - all of which are richly exhibited in these companion volumes." "The Moral Life of Children, " illustrated by children's drawings, shows how children struggle with questions of moral choice in the United States, Brazil, and elsewhere, as revealed in their reactions to movies and stories, in their moral conduct, their conversation, their family lives, and their anxieties about themselves and the world in the face of possible nuclear war. As Jonathan Kellerman wrote in "The Los Angeles Times Book Review, " "Coles journeys into theology, social science, and popular culture...Along the way he offers a fascinating banquet of vignettes, children whose deeds, thoughts, and feelings resonate with moral strength."

Review:

"We are a nation that sentimentalizes children or dismisses them, but we do not take them seriously . . . [Coles] is a notable exception to this prevalent attitude."

Synopsis:

Assesses the origins of moral consciousness in such diverse cultures as the United States, Brazil, Northern Ireland, South Africa, Poland, Southeast Asia, French Canada, and Nicaragua, examining children of a wide range of conditions and classes.
