Learning Stories

Most people learn stories in their families and from other people with whom they share many things in common. These stories often teach us important things. For instance, in many cultures, parents tell their children the story of Santa Claus to teach them about being generous. That's important.

Holidays and Celebrations

In America, most people celebrate the 4th of July and people of Christian faith celebrate Easter. Did you know that many people around the world have never heard about these holidays? Everyone has special days they celebrate each year.


All people have their own beliefs about what they think is important and what is not so important. People develop beliefs from many places like family, church, friends, and school. Everyone’s beliefs are a little different because everyone’s life is a little different.
