Product Description

Wisdom and the Millers Make Proverbs come alive for the children in your home, church, or school! Here is a character building collection of lively, inspirational stories. Each chapter explains and illustrates a passage from the book of Proverbs, along with a story based on true life experiences. Follow the four "Miller" children as they learn great truths of life and wisdom; sometimes through their parents' stories, and sometimes the hard way! Will a father's prayer keep his family safe from the burglar? Why did Timmy get a bloody nose at the family reunion? And what is the sad story behind their mother's wooden stool? Read about these, and twenty-two other exciting stories.

    This book was recommended to me by my home school store. I can see why the other people like this book, and we too liked it at first as well. My kids were loving the stories too. The book takes a Proverb and expounds on it and uses some practical application to make its point. However, after getting into it more, we decided to stop reading it for a few reasons. It tends to lean toward legalism (calling smoking a "sin"), and shows harsh discipline methods instead of reaching the heart (like "Shepherding a Child's Heart" and the Bible shows). The Millers seem to use "harsh" tones and "stern" talk instead of instructing their children in love, and use a lot of old-fashioned style of "no smiling on Sunday" type of ideas. Their lifestyle is very old-fashioned as well, and my kids couldn't really relate since we don't live on a farm and require them to do hard labor.So, it's not all bad, but enough of it is not Biblical enough and introduces the ideas of legalism that I never intend my children to learn. So, a little warning about this book amidst the other glowing reviews. This is not a book of grace and the knowledge of the Lord, but leans too much toward man-made rules and traditions.

    My family loves listening to the Miller's stories. This book has been a blessing to each of us and all three of my children, ages 11, 7 and 4 1/2, talk about the story, characters, and the Proverb long after the lesson is done, months later, even. I recently found that there is a workbook to go along with this book. I am planning on using it when we go through Wisdom and the Millers again. You might be interested in some of the other Miller books as well, such as Prudence and the Millers (a great one to use for health if you home school!). We will be reading this book again and again.

    This book is one of my very, very, very favorite books for children! I read this aloud to my children as a homeschooling devotional. It is simple and fun to use. The stories are wonderful. It is wholesome and full of wisdom. What more could you ask? I only wish there were more books like this. I'm looking and can't find anything similar for a slightly older child.
