Mr. and Mrs. Ramos are awaiting the arrival of their nephew's flight from Mexico. They are excited Ricky is coming to live with them, although they understand he's sad to leave his grandmother and everything familiar at home. Mr. Ramos uses the aphorism "every cloud has a silver lining" to convey to his wife that the young boy will eventually see the good in an unhappy situation. It is a story that parents and grandparents relate to and it makes it easy for children to understand the lesson. The story provides an opportunity for children to develop values, insight, and common sense.
The Learning to be Wise series is designed to increase creativity and improve skills in reading, writing, critical thinking, and problem solving. The series is written primarily for children ages 8-10 (grades 2-4); age appropriateness will depend on an individual's reading ability.
