Parent Guide > The Anklet
Welcome to the parent guide for this text! Read below to find out about what your child is reading in class and how you can support him/her at home.
This week in class, we’re reading "The Anklet" by Neil Philip.
In the story, "The Anklet," a young woman must deal with unkind and spiteful treatment from her two older sisters.
As we read, we will be discussing the themes of Fate & Free Will, Love, and Morality as they relate to the text. We are trying to answer these big questions :
"How does love emerge?", "Why do people do bad things?", and "Can we control our fate?"
Ways to support your child:

- What was "The Anklet" About
- What did you learn about? About Love? About Morality?
