This booklet (one of a series of 10 booklets in a reading project to benefit Kosair Children's Hospital in Louisville, Kentucky) contains 10 stories especially written for sixth graders by educators. The stories are about: a student's coping with a terminal illness and its effect on his classmates; a boy's feelings about his rheumatoid arthritis; children's reactions to various hospital experiences; a 12-year-old's problem with overweight; a son's facing up to the truth of his parents' divorce; how children and others deal with personal differences caused by illness or disability; and similar topics. Students read the stories in the booklet and answer comprehension questions, and pledges are made by parents and friends for each question answered. The stories or story topics may be used in the classroom for instructional purposes and are intended to integrate the language arts, social studies, health, and creative arts. (SR)
