sku173 300wChristopher Dock emigrated from Germany to Pennsylvania in 1714. He opened a school based on his Mennonite faith along the Skippack Creek. In 1764, due to encouragement by friends to share his wisdom, he published A Hundred Necessary Rules of Conduct for children anonymously in the German Geistliches magazine. Using Samuel Pennypacker’s translation if the Hundred rules from 1883, this book illustrates three children living out Christopher Docks rules for children, followed by a discussion guide with activities.
