Cory and the Seventh Story

 
The story we tell about the world shapes how we live. Along Cory’s journey, readers will discover six familiar stories that have repeated through history, teaching us all how to dominate, fear, or withdraw from the world and the beautiful people in it. The good news is that there is another story, a path of openheartedness toward others. Cory’s discovery of the Seventh Story will inspire children and adults alike.

Cory and the Seventh Story is a book aimed to help kids grow up resilient and full of wonder – and grown-ups can learn from it too. Use it to start a discussion with your kids about how we treat those who seem different from us. Or open it with adults to revolutionize your own understanding of how the stories we’re telling about the world lead to fear, aggression, and loneliness – and how we might tell a story that creates joy, connection, and abundance even in the most difficult times and places.
