Story #1

Paul Coelho's

The Alchemist

Read The Alchemist with Dr. A.

The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho has established itself as a modern classic, universally admired.

Paulo Coelho's masterpiece tells the magical story of Santiago, an Andalusian shepherd boy who yearns to travel in search of a worldly treasure as extravagant as any ever found.


The story of the treasures Santiago finds along the way teaches us, as only a few stories can, about the essential wisdom of listening to our hearts, learning to read the omens strewn along life's path, and, above all, following our dreams.


Similar to a Pixar movie, this tale has something for everyone, parents and kids. Much like a fairytale, it presents important ideas on different levels. Children of all ages will be able to understand the story from their perspective.  Adults may find it inspiring in times like these.
