Activity Overview


Throughout the book, readers are introduced to a variety of thoughts on how to live a better life. These thoughts are called, "Mr. Browne's Precepts", and each ties into the story. Most come down to the basic idea that being good to others will make our lives better.

In this exercise, have students find Mr. Browne's precepts, or other inspiring quotes from the book, and correlate the words to something in their life. Students can choose three separate quotes and do separate scenes, or they can choose one and use a sequence of events to illustrate how the quote ties into their experiences.

Mr. Browne's precept, "choose kind", is meant to make us realize that our words and actions affect other people.
