The Chronicles of Narnia have sold over 100 million copies in 47 different languages. The stories were popular because of their strong character themes. Through that, the Narnian Virtues curriculum was developed by Dr. Tom Lickona for children to fully understand knowledge, feeling and behavior - head, heart and hand. A desire to share these virtues with others can accompany the desire to understand them personally.
Below are a few of the Narnian Virtues:
- Courage: the habit of overcoming fear when confronting physical danger or facing social pressure to do what's wrong.
- Integrity: the habit of sticking to our moral values; following our conscience; being honest with ourselves and others.
- Fortitude: the habit of doing what is right in the face of difficulty; the mental and emotional strength to handle hardship, overcome obstacles, and endure suffering; showing confidence, courage, patience, perseverance, endurance, or resilience in challenging circumstances.
