Product Description

This little book gently conveys the most important traits of the Christian life for children to master! Ensure the message of "saved by Grace alone" shines through as you explain how godly character relates to the gospel of grace. Twenty-three student lessons cover traits such as obedience, contentment, gratitude, respect, meekness, discernment, and kindness with a tied-in animal illustration, large-font "big idea" sentence, verse, examples of how to apply the verse (with room for children to think of more ideas on their own), and a prayer. The back of the book features a teacher's guide with an opening activity related to the illustration; the memory verse and definition are repeated on the teacher page as well. Discussion questions are given for follow up. Perfect for use in a classroom or as a family! Grades K-4.

Publisher's Description

Question: What do our kids need? Answer: They need wisdom. "Wisdom is supreme; therefore get wisdom." Proverbs 4:7

Designed for parents or teachers to use with children from K-5-through Grade 4, twenty-three lessons illustrate qualities of wisdom and godliness. Each lesson is presented in a simple format with illustrations to capture the attention of the child, and supplemented at the back of the book with suggestions for teaching the lesson. Every child of God - both adults and children - should work hard to show these traits more and more, because we love Jesus and want to be like him. That's easier said than done, isn't it? We struggle with sin every day, and we will fail. The lessons remind us that when we do, we will find forgiveness and the grace to continue to get wisdom at the foot of the Cross.

Looking for a book to use in a summer camp, VBS, backyard bible club, or family devotions? Get Wisdom! 23 Lessons for Children about Living for Jesus by Ruth Younts can help in all those fields. Based on Proverbs 4:7-19, each of the sections takes a strong look at one word: listen, respect, diligence, obedience, plus 19 more. The first half of Get Wisdom! contains a worksheet for each word. These sheets are aimed at elementary school-age children. Each page has an eye-catching illustration. Each provides simple, biblical definitions, Scripture references, questions to answer, and a prayer. The second half of this book is the teacher's guide. Each section in this half gives helps for activities, memory verses, and discussions.

Written by a Christian education director, Get Wisdom! is a good thought-starter for teachers. The lessons embody profound biblical ideas on a level children can understand. This book will help young students gain spiritual insight while creating a hunger for more of God’s Word. – Donna Eggett,

    I bought this book to begin intentionally teaching godly character traits to my 7-year-old. The book is simple and easy to use. It defines and has a scripture for each character trait, and the discussion guide is very helpful. However, I am disappointed that many of the activities are designed for a group and not all are easily adapted for individual use.

    This is a wonderful book of character lessons for children.

    In the beginning of the book, Ms. Younts wisely begins by talking about what Christian wisdom is and how wisdom and the Gospel are related. She explains that we can't be good enough and we can't earn God's love. She also explains why we want to be good. The scriptures in this page are ones that I want to memorize with my children so that they will be written on our hearts. The next section gives a definition for each of 23 traits (like listening and orderliness), a Bible verse, a prayer, and a symbolic picture to help children remember what the words mean. The next section includes a lesson plan for each of the traits. There's a short introductory activity, the memory verse, discussion questions, and often role play suggestions for each trait.

    At the very beginning of the book, Ms. Younts says that the best age range for this book is K-4. I agree with that age range. This book would be perfect for children's church or another time when you have children of these ages together. I thought of my church and the times that we have been volunteering to help watch children while the parents are taking classes at a local shelter. Most of the activities would work for home devotions as well. Only one of 23 activities wouldn't.

    What I liked best about this book is the appropriateness of both the questions and the definitions. I know that my Kindergarten and Second grade daughters would both be able to answer these questions and understand the definitions. When I was a classroom teacher, one of the most difficult things was to structure an activity so that all ability levels could participate. Ms. Younts has done an excellent job with this book of making that possible with this book.

    If you're looking for a book to use once a week for homeschooling, for family devotion times, for Sunday school, or for children's church with K-4 graders and you have multiple age children, I highly recommend this book!

    Please note that I received a complimentary copy of this book for review from Shepherd Press.
