Sample text - C page:

C is for Community

Community means people
   Caring about each other
     Helping each other

Talking together
Doing things together

Sharing with each other
Sticking up for each other

Miriam was part of her communities
    Where she lived
      Where she worked
        And side by side with people
          wherever she could help.

She cared.
She helped.
She listened.
She talked.

And she was fun to be with.


Sample text - Q page:

Q is for Questions

Miriam asked lots of questions.

    Because that ’s how you learn about people
    And that ’s how you understand things

It ’s good to ask questions.

    Sometimes you get answers.
    Sometimes you get more questions.
    That’s good too.

There are always more questions than answers.

Good questions are better than thoughtless answers.

        Why is that?
