Sample text - C page:
C is for Community
Community means people
Caring about each other
Helping each other
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.
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?
