Proverbs People, Book One
A Practical Workbook of Character Studies from the Book of Wisdom
The Book of Proverbs was written by Solomon to teach his sons. He possessed great wisdom, and with this large, lay-open binding book, you can lead your children into it. Proverbs People contains extensive studies of the Slothful and the Diligent; the Righteous and the Wicked; the Five Types of Fools named in Proverbs; the Wise Man; the Prudent Man; and the Liar as compared to the Faithful Witness.
Proverbs People is full of short-answer questions, example stories, fun quizzes, coloring pages, and application questions to help you learn about 13 types of people who we’re introduced to in The Book of Proverbs.
See Proverbs People, Book Two for further studies of the people in the book of Proverbs. Recommended for ages 8-12.
A Word to Parents from The Boyers about Proverbs People
This workbook is the offshoot of a project we created for our own children. We believe that Proverbs, the book of fatherly wisdom, is a treasury of child training principles. A study of character types in the book is a tremendously valuable exercise because it calls the child’s attention to godly character and lists the attributes of each type, giving the child a basis for evaluating his own character and responding to others wisely.
