[Written Especially for Children]

Keeping the Door Shut

From the July 9, 1932 issue of the Christian Science Sentinel

In an old fairy tale the story was told about the mother of the family going to town and leaving the children alone to keep house ! Always she told them never to open the door to any stranger while she was away, and always the children replied that they would keep the door tightly shut. Very soon a stranger would come along, however, and promise the children many nice and pleasant things if they would open the door to him; and somehow or other the children opened the door.
