[Of Special Interest to Children]

David enjoyed going to school, and he was very much pleased that he had been present every day of the school year. He also attended the Christian Science Sunday School, where his mother was a Sunday School teacher. Each day during the week they studied together the Bible Lessons from the Christian Science Quarterly so that they would be ready to talk of God in their Sunday School classes. It was then that David could share the good thoughts of Truth with the other children. And each day there were many times when David and his mother could put into practice what they learned of Christian Science.

Then school closed for vacation. But when David reached home that afternoon he seemed to feel quite uncomfortable with a cold. Although it was nothing but a lie pretending to be true, when it had knocked at the door of David's thinking and had asked to be allowed to come in David had forgotten to question it. Had he done so he would have remembered that it was only error trying to rob him of health and happiness. Now he had to cast out the false claim which said, "You must stay home and go to bed."

He asked his mother to help him solve this problem. So together they listened for God's voice and tried to be obedient to it. Through their study of the Bible and of "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy they had learned to turn to God, ever-present Mind, whenever they needed help in working out a problem and proving that they were really the perfect children of God.
