Literacy Online. Every child literate - a shared responsibility.



by James Brown; illustration by Anna Crichton 

Ancestors are deceased people who still bother you sometimes. Like crazy Great-Aunt Unice, who didn’t let being dead stop her expressing an opinion. It’s freaky, but ancestors are not zombies or ghosts. Well, they’re sort of ghosts. They might haunt you if you’ve done something bad, just to teach you. But they kind of care too.
