Mason's Greatest Gems

As he does every Saturday afternoon, Mason is digging next to the old swing when he finds a handful of items for his treasure collection...

Mason’s Greatest Gems is a story about finding hidden gems inside yourself, with an introduction to the concept of virtues for children. The book features a little boy who learns about mining gems after finding a treasure in his backyard. Using his experience of finding and polishing a piece of quartz as a metaphor, he then learns what it means to develop qualities like kindness, helpfulness, courtesy and more.

This book is designed to give children a visual example of what it means to develop positive character traits. It can be used to inspire discussions in your homes and classrooms about using life experiences as opportunities for personal growth.
