The hole in the dike

This week we read a story called, "The Hole in the Dike."
The story is about a Dutch boy who saves his country by putting his finger in a leaking dike. The boy stays there all night, in spite of the cold, until the adults of the village find him and make the necessary repairs."

This tale teaches us that if we act quickly and in time, even children  with our  limited strength and resources can avert disasters.
