Proverbs for Kids are a series of four devotional books covering over 100 proverbs designed specifically to teach children Biblical truths in a fun, easy, and entertaining way. These easy-to-grasp concepts captivate the imagination and help kids understand important truths in a language they can understand. What's more is both kids and adults who read to them will enjoy these informative and colorful books. These books are especially good for kids between the ages of 5 and 11. This particular volume in the series shows how God uses 22 Parts of the Human Body to help explain foundational spiritual truths. As a medical doctor, I am especially interested in our bodies and how they work. When we look at the wonder of our bodies, we see the hand of an incredible Inventor- God himself. Psalms 139:13-14 says this: "For you God created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother's womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well." The three other books in this series are about Things in Nature, Earthly Creatures, and Things Around the House.
Each of the four books in the series contain Teachable Truths and the Take Home Points to explain the proverb(s) in more detail. There are Other Key Verses from the Bible to reinforce the point of the proverb. Many of these key verses of scripture serve as great memory verses!
The Conclusion at the end of each topic reinforces the main point of the Proverb to make memorable teaching. The four books in the Proverbs for Kids series are easy to navigate with enlarged pictures that accompany the associated Proverbs.
The Proverbs for Kids book series coupled with the time you invest reading to your kids or grandchildren will engrain Biblical wisdom they can draw on for the rest of their lives!
With so many difficult challenges we face to raise godly children in today's upside down culture, it is important to introduce them from a young age to God who loves them dearly is an important priority. Learning about God together is the right way to go and will enhance our family relationships even more.
As you read through Proverbs and view the pictures in this book, you will be able to picture yourself growing up in Israel during Bible times to see how God used Parts of the Human Body to teach his wisdom. That wisdom is the same today as it was yesterday. Through the Holy Spirit, may God use this book to draw many young hearts and minds toward understanding his spiritual truth and right ways of living. I hope these inspirational books will be a great adventure for you.
God is the greatest storyteller, and throughout the Bible he uses creative and inspiring ways to help us learn Biblical truths. He often uses the "things of this world" such as clouds, the sun, light, darkness, deserts, oceans, the wind, water, animals, other earthly creatures, parts of the human body and simple, everyday things around the house (to name just a few!) to teach us eternal truths. In the Old Testament, God teaches us his timeless wisdom from the Book of Proverbs. Then in the New Testament, Jesus tells numerous stories, called parables, to help teach deep spiritual lessons. He uses common concepts such as farming, money, fig trees, soil, doors, and fishing to teach important life lessons.
The practical teachings contained in Proverbs were inspired by God to mankind over 2,000 years ago. The book was written around 920 B.C., primarily by King Solomon, the wisest man who has ever lived, according to the Bible. While that's a long time ago, his teaching principles still "hold" for today!
Enjoy and Happy Learning (or Reading)!
