The Pearables are character-building stories told in parables. Most of them follow a "king and kingdom" format, beginning with introductions such as, "There was once a mighty King who ruled over all the land as far as the eye could see." Each story goes on to address an important teaching about faith and character, generally from a conservative Protestant perspective. Examples of titles: "The Viewing Box" (about entertainment and television), "The Governor's Plot" (about homeschooling), "The Beauty" (about inner and outer beauty), and the self explanatory titles "Faith," "Patience," and "Brotherly Kindness."

Biblical applications and verses are at the end of each story. Delightful black-and-white illustrations create storybook appeal. Each story is about 20 pages in length, so you can read through a story in a single sitting or spread it out into two or three sessions for younger children. Stories are presented in three volumes, with 8 stories per volume.
