Overview

The Character of Elsie Dinsmore is designed to help young children to recognize, analyze, and exemplify the godly character traits that are portrayed by Martha Finley's beloved character, Elsie Dinsmore. Thirty-eight godly qualities are defined, identified, and cross-referenced with other positive character traits, using direct examples from the novel Elsie Dinsmore, the first volume in The Original Elsie Classics. Texts from the Bible are also provided to show how these virtues -- definitions come from the Seminar in Basic Youth Conflicts -- can be cultivated and applied to everyday Christian living, including suggestions for practical ways in which these traits can be put into daily practice by anyone.
