Each of the thirty stories in Isabel Anderson’s collection teaches a lesson in a delightful way. It may be a lesson about honesty, or about unselfishness, or about hospitality. It may be about sharing, about using one’s talent, or about a particular Christian truth. But whatever lesson it is, it is always told in a way that captures the interest of the listeners — whether young or old — by its vivid freshness, naturalness, and realism, as anyone with children will immediately note. The stories, told from an Orthodox world-view, are about children, their parents and grandparents, their priests, friends, and teachers -what they learn together, and how they grow from what they learn — and we grow with them. The lesson running through all the stories is the one about love -that essential condition for making the family the “little church” it is meant to be.

Each story is followed by a brief study, with a Bible passage to be read, a theme verse, questions for discussion, and a prayer.
