Eleven third-graders are participating in Junior Great Books at Ox Ridge School this year.

The enrichment program is created by an independent, nonprofit educational organization called the Great Books Foundation.

There are no lectures, tests or wrong answers. The participants in JGB are prepared, having read their assigned stories at home once, often twice.

They are engaged, interested, opinionated and wonderfully willing to share their views.

One story that was recently discussed

was a Nigerian folktale, "It's All the Fault of Adam."
