by Leo Tolstoy


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 Three Questions" by Leo Tolstoy.

Leo Tolstoy (1828-1910) was a famous Russian author, perhaps best known for his novels War and Peace and Anna Karenina. In this short story, a king looks for three answers to three questions in order to make himself a better ruler.

As we read, we will be discussing the themes of Resilience & Success and War & Peace as they relate to the text. We are trying to answer these big questions :

"Why do people succeed?" and "How can we achieve peace?"
