From the Pleasant Valley Farm Series.
"Pride goeth before destruction, and an haughty spirit before a fall." —Proverbs 16:18
Chester was handsome, and friendly, and curious. But his pride got him into trouble. When Chester thought he was big and tough enough to challenge the mean, old rabbit who lived under the corncrib, Molly taught him a lesson he would not forget.
Note to Parents
Helga Moser bases her Pleasant Valley Farm Series on actual incidents that happened on her parents' farm. As you read the stories to your children, they will learn, along with the animals, some basic lessons of life.
This book will help your child grow in character as he learns along with Chester that pride can do a lot of damage. Had Chester thought more of others and less of himself, he wouldn't have been so foolish as to tangle with that rabbit.
Like many children, Chester had a likeable personality, but when he thought too highly of himself, selfish blindness marred his character. The next time the children who read this story hear a rooster crow, may they remember Chester and the lesson Molly had to teach him.
