THE CHILD An Homage to Grandparents and the Seven Ages of Life
This is a gorgeous story by Charles Dickens which I have slightly updated and abridged so students can appreciate it. It is about the different stages of life, about the power of family and the need to belong to others. Includes:
creative activities to explore the themes
imagery and poetry to inspire
The story mentions Heaven as our final destination.
Children will love to have this short story read to them with a touch of nostalgia. The responses are open so that all types of family situations are included.
