Jorge's father gives him a coin to take with him when he goes to market with his mother. Jorge could use the coin to buy anything he wants—chewing gum, a ball, a mango.... But instead of buying something for himself, Jorge gives his coin to a lame man who is along the street asking for money. When Jorge gets home, he does not have anything that he bought with his coin. But he does have a happy heart.
This story, set in northern Mexico, will teach your children the joy of giving.
