The Footstool and the Armchair is a story about two friends. When one feels unhappy and unloved, the other lifts him up and shows him the positive side of things and the beauty of the world around us. Being in contact with nature, serving others, loving yourself, and having good friends to rely on are some of the positive messages the story aims to convey.
The story is written in English and Greek. You can enjoy it in either language and take away its positive message or read it in both English and Greek, using it as a language-learning tool. At the end of the story you will find questions to test your reading comprehension; or if you’re reading the story to your child, use them as starting points for thought-provoking discussions.
