Today’s story, Stellaluna by Janell Cannon, reminds us that as Unitarian Universalists we should not just accept each other, but LEARN from each other.
I wonder which part of this story is the most important?
I wonder which part you like the best?
I wonder why the owl chased the bats?
I wonder if Stellaluna was afraid when she fell out of her mother’s grip and fell into the bird nest?
I wonder if you have ever lost your mom while out shopping or in the park or some place like that?
I wonder if your mom would help out another child if she got lost?
I wonder why Stellaluna liked the baby birds even though they weren’t bats like her?
I wonder if you have a friend who looks kind of different from you?
I wonder if you can do some things better than other kids?
I wonder what Stellaluna and her bird friends learned anything from each other?
I wonder if you have ever looked at someone and thought they could not be your friend because they were just too different?
I wonder if you would rather be a bat or a bird?
I wonder if this story reminds you of any of our other Unitarian Universalist Promises?
I wonder where the Spirit of Love and Mystery might be in this story?
