The editorial review above says that this book makes it easy for children to understand wisdom. That isn't true, however. The book only gives you verses to look up and questions to ask. But, it never explains anything. It also says that it's appropriate for all ages...nope, my children are 7 and 9. The book never explains anything and you are only told to read the verses in the bible....my children were asking me what wisdom is and other questions, so I was trying to explain these things. I didn't need a book that only told me to read from beginning to end of proverbs.....I can go through proverbs myself.
Example from book (this is one day's lesson):
READING 1: THE FEAR OF GOD IS THE BEGINNING OF WISDOM
READ: Proverbs 1:1-9
ANSWER: How does wisdom help us? What is called the beginning of wisdom? What is it that fools despise? What persons should you listen to?
VERSE: [The fear of the Lord is the beginnin of knowledge,] but fools despise wisdom and discipline. Proverbs 1:7
That's all folks....that is all you get for one day everyday. And that is okay for older children and adults but not for young ones like mine. I need something geared to their understanding and this is not. (It does include a simple black and white game to tear out of the back of the book.)

I like this book because it focused on Proverbs. If I and my children could memorize the whole of Proverbs, I think we'd be better for it. Its a good simple book. I appreciated the sequence of topics. I liked the pictures at the beginning of each chapter. I actually made copies for the kids (8,6 and 4) to color while I read them the story. Every morning was a short reading (which is good for small children's attention span) with questions. Sometimes I asked the questions verbatim, sometimes we discussed other questions we thought of. I liked the activities in the back that related to the lesson. Every Friday, if the children had the memory verse memorized, they got a treat. So, I think this book is what you make of it. You can make it into a good bible study or perhaps just a reference book. Either way, its a good purchase.

We liked it. I like the fact that the chapters deal with individual traits (ie-controlling anger, honoring parents, lying, etc) There are scriture cards included to help with memorizing and a neat game. Each chapter also starts with a good cartoony kind of full page illustration with the main scripture that you could copy for the kids to color and make a notebook.

This book lays out lessons based on solid verses that describe what wisdom is. The lessons contain discussion, object lesson and examples for young and old alike. Each lesson also has a study for the men and women to do. This prepares the whole family to teach the children. I like the idea of families learning together. The lessons have a lot of meat, so you can get very indepth if you so choose. The whole study has a game that you can start playing right away that re-enforces the lessons. We made up little memory books to go with the lessons. It worked very well for our Family Night.
I highly recommend this product.
