Feed Me Books: Proverbs for Kids

I am linking up here to share some good books!

I bought this book before we even had kids.  I love the book by Elizabeth George, Beautiful in God's Eyes.  I have read it over and over.  So when I saw she had a book for little girls, I had to have it.  The illustrations are so beautiful and each page spread focuses on a different virtue. 

Fast forward a few years and I was pregnant with my first child- a boy.  I was looking through the book store and I saw one for BOYS!!  Elizabeth and her husband wrote this one.  It is equally as beautiful and I love the way it teaches Proverbs in a way a little boy can understand.  Plus, the boy has a pet dog and frog and they are in each picture.  My son likes to find them. 

It has been a while since I pulled this off the shelf to read (it is not with the regular books- I guess I am selfishly keeping it out of harm's way!).  I am excited to put it in our reading stack for tomorrow!


  1. I understand completely about trying to keep a book out of harm's way. Great book. Thanks for sharing.

  2. You are right! I saw this one before I had children, but made a mental note that I wanted it. I guess it's time to buy it now!

    I love books that speak to me as well as to her.

  3. These are going on my list for me down the road as well as for gifts for others. Thanks for sharing!

  4. The illustrations do indeed look beautiful as well as the message.

  5. Oh yes...these are both on honored book shelves of our home and I love them.

  6. These sound like keepers for sure! Thanks for sharing.
