Theme is the underlying message of the story that is not directly stated in the text, and can be found by analyzing the thoughts, words, and actions of characters. Ask yourself these questions:
1. What do the characters think, say, and do?
2. Why do the characters think, say, and do what they do?
3. Which thoughts, words, and actions do you react positively to? Which get the best results for characters?
4. How is the author telling us to think, talk, and act?
