Ishmael "You will never read a story that is more inspiring and challenging than Ishmael. The heights of success achieved by this young man reveal little of the utter poverty into which he was born. He enters life motherless and poor, and despite the wishes of everyone around, he survives and flourishes in his paltry environment. His commitment to integrity and his singular focus on preserving his mother's name give his life focus and purpose."
Beatrix Potter...i still remember the art work from my childhood and my children's. After reading them to my children, I still have some passages memorized. Now I am looking forward to reading them to my grandchildren when they get old enough.
Ishmael and Self Raised- I just finished these books and they are worthy of all young peoples time. I would recommend them to anyone and everyone, especially those looking for a godly example of work and character.
