The finding showed that the stories contained a fair strong sociocultural literacy dimensions. The dimensions in the story of “Jodoh”, “Orang dari Luar Negeri” and “Orang Baik yang Malang” were illustrated by literate theme elevation of the moral attitude in society. In the story of “Politik Warung Kopi” and “Orde Lama”, the prominent sociocultural literacy dimension was the social criticism towards the governance. The story of “Baginda Ratu” and “Efendi” tended to give more importance to its sociocultural literacy dimension, socio-economic development, and individual status, and success as well. The story of “Kisah Seorang Amir” emerged its sociocultural dimension by showing that literacy activities became a tradition, in either educational institutions or social environment.
