In today’s world of violent cartoons and unrealistic movies, it is refreshing to come across a collection of stories which not only preach a moral outcome, but also teach children how to deal with real-life issues. Truth in Stories for Ages Four through Six by Ammama is one such refreshing collection.
For example, what should a child do when he sees his best friend stealing? How can children handle issues such as racism, especially if it is taught or encouraged by their own parents? And what should they do when they find something that does not belong to them – are they allowed to keep it or should they try to locate the owner?
These and other tough issues are tackled head-on in an easy-to-understand yet no-nonsense manner by Ammama, using appropriate language for her audience.
