A Penny’s Worth of Character

By Jesse Stuart
Level 5

Jesse Stuart is a fantastic writer of moral stories for youth. My daughter and I enjoyed reading and
discussing A Penny’s Worth of Character, which is a simple but lovely story about honesty. I love the
descriptions in the book about nature and about the feelings we have when we are both honest and
dishonest. We also learned about life in Kentucky in early America. The book is 61 pages long with
medium print and full-page black-and-white illustrations every few pages.
