I am using this book to teach my five and four year old boys about "being a wise man" (also our theme for Christmas). The book is excellent in piqueing their interest, they always listen carefully, and they really seem to want to learn from it. Each character quality is accompanied by a Bible Verse, which the boys are memorizing. The pictures are intriguing.My only disappointment with the book is that it does not include "self-control" as a quality, which I find important for young boys.
This book is a great read for moms and sons. It is really most appropriate for that relationship. The Bible verses are easily read right along with the text, which is nice. My boys, 4, 3, and 1 all request the book often and I'm happy to have them thinking about the topics in the book.
My 3 year old son loves this book. It is filled with adventure, bugs, and dragons~all the things he loves with a message that I love. It is my favorite, too! It helps me to teach him he is to protect not "destroy."
