We can learn many important lessons about life from stories. Imaginative stories with make-believe characters enable us to identify with the characters' behaviors. They create an emotional place where we feel safe, enabling us to apply the ideas that we feel are appropriate to our own lives. Doing so is true personal growth.
The story of the Ones and the Zeros is just such a story.
The imaginary characters, presented as animated cartoon images, represent different types of people, and the situations they encounter encompass many aspects of real life. The Ones and the Zeros struggle with normal conflicts and the process of resolving them. You might have similar conflicts at times.
Whether you think you are a One or feel like you are a Zero, or think you are a Zero and want to feel like a One - or even if at times you are not quite sure - there is a message here for you. More than a hundred questions appear at the end of the story.
These are extremely useful for classroom and family interaction and discussion. Readers of all ages are sure to enjoy and learn from this unusual, enjoyable, and educational experience.
