The Treasure

[For children]

It isn't every day that a girl brings home a treasure. But one day Kathy came home carrying a brown paper package. In it was a book, which she had saved and saved her pocket money to buy.

When Kathy showed her family the book, they thought it strange indeed that any girl should be so delighted with one which told no story and had no pictures. You see, Kathy was the first member of her family to learn about Christian Science. While her mother was in a hospital, and quite often afterward when she was not well and things were difficult at home, Kathy would stay with her school friend, and it was from this family that she learned of Christian Science. Her own parents allowed her to attend the Christian Science Sunday School, but they themselves were not interested in Kathy's precious book. Can you guess its title?

Of course! It was Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mrs. Eddy. It was all new to Kathy and she loved it; for, as she read, she began to understand God better.
