Robert grew bigger and bigger and so did his problems. Oh, he loved recess, and he played ball and roller-skated with friends after school and had the best time! And the teacher saw to it that they sang and drew pictures and had lots of fun in class.
But always there came the problems.
And sometimes he slumped down at his desk and said, “I am not enjoying this! Why are you punishing me with all these problems?”
And Robert’s teacher, now twinkling as if the secret were even more wonderful, answered, “Oh, Robert, I am not punishing you. It’s just that you have moved up a grade and are ready for harder problems. And here comes one now.”
Robert held onto his desk with both hands and squeezed his eyes shut and listened.
This book speaks of facing life's challenges, the big ones and the small ones. In my opinion it is at its best when read aloud and with someone else to share the reading. The Lesson: A Fable for Our Times is a perfect gift, one that I have given again and again.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

A book about the lessons life gives us the opportunity to learn - simple yet profound. Fast to read but the message will stay with you. Could change the way you think about your trials.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

This was a Christmas gift from a very dear friend, and I cried when I read this book. She gave it to all of the friends in our circle, and we all had the same reaction about this wonderful book. I am buying some to give away as gifts and am keeping mine close to remind me when I have a bad day the things that are really most important in our lives.Was this review helpful?
