Animal Farm Focus Guide


Animal Farm

by George Orwell

Written as a criticism of Soviet Russia, Animal Farm is as relevant today as it was 50 years ago, for there will always be those eager to control others and limit freedom.

Barbara's Notes: This is another must-read. The “fairie story” was written Mr. Orwell as a warning. The focus guide works with the story to develop discernment. With Matthew 10:16 in mind, we consider aspects of shrewdness and innocence, preparing young adults to be wise.
