Imagination (4 weeks)

A giant that can create dreams? Two kids as rulers of a secret kingdom? Don’t let your imagination run away with you! Learn about how we dream, magic worlds, and the key to reading books. Can you imagine how much fun this is going to be?


Kindness and Generosity (4 weeks) 

Both these stories highlight friendship, loyalty, and kindness. What does it mean to be kind? Discover kindness between friends, communities, and families as we travel between worlds, real and imagined.

 

Family (4 weeks)

We have all said something like, “I wish that…”, haven’t you? Now imagine if you got your wish. These children did! However, none of them went quite as planned… After their wild wish adventures, they meet a phoenix! It can talk and shows them a time-traveling magic carpet. Who needs wishes when they have that?

 

Animals (4 weeks)

Ever heard the phrase, A dog is a man’s best friend? In these stories, learn about two canines who most certainly prove the truthfulness of that line. These animals teach their owners about true loyalty, friendship, and love. 


Bravery and Adventure (4 weeks)

Would you be brave enough to be frank with the king or have a secret friend? Discover both these dilemmas and decide for yourself. Sometimes, adventures are simply waiting for us right outside our own front doors (or maybe just next door). Who knows what lies ahead?


Wise Choices (4 weeks)

Sam and Oscar face life-threatening situations in almost every chapter, during which they need to make responsible, wise choices. This can be especially hard when one is only eleven years old and has never had to make these decisions before. Keep a level head as we travel through time and space to learn a thing or two about making wise choices!

 

Determination (4 weeks)

Learn all about hard work and keeping to it in these literary adventures! Can two stowaways survive the grizzly bear, coyote, and crazy miners? An unusual girl is surrounded and loved by many unusual people who would, in normal circumstances, be called robbers. Let’s see what we can learn from these steadfast characters.

 

Thoughtfulness and Compassion (4 weeks)

Being thoughtful and compassionate isn’t always easy. In fact, it can be very hard. Garnet practices showing the love she has for her family and friends. Chester discovers the true meaning of friendship. Last of all, Edward Tulane learns what it means to truly love, despite any and all challenges that may arise.
