This presentation has a few suggestions for using reading and writing activities to help guide children to proper choices. Many of the books that interest youngsters of this age treat themes dealing with values - obedience to rules, being honest, kind, loyal, truthful, and helpful. Some of the books highlighted include: 'Where the Red Fern Grows,' 'Sarah Plain and Tall,' 'Crow Chief,' 'The Long Winter,' 'Fish Fry Tonight,' and 'Rag Coat.' Encouragement is given to children to keep a journal of what they learn from stories they have read.
