Do not go down the wrong street
About the Book
“Do Not Go Down the Wrong Street” was written based on my personal belief that it is important for children to be taught the importance of character, morals, and values. A reflection of what was stressed and demonstrated in my household as a child; my mother always spoke of the importance of Respect, Honesty, and Self-Control. Readers will be introduced to 9-year-old Mari and his family, which consists of his mother, grandmother, and three sisters. Before Mari was exposed to the Character Education Traits in school; his mother and grandmother would always talk about going down the wrong street. Journey with Mari as he learns the importance of “Character Education” and how not to go down the wrong street.
