"Train up a child..." really works!

by Distance Librarian on Sep 26, 2013

A short story about a girl leaving home to make her way in the world and holding to the principles instilled in her from childhood. Philomena is guided by her grandmother's teachings on right and wrong, and by good old common sense, and her strong adherence to her grandmother's guidance leads her to the place she wants to be most of all. A very nice, encouraging read!
