There are thousands of books and curriculum choices for parents these days.
Let us make it simple for you. . .
Have you given your children God’s curriculum?

It should go without saying that there is a good deal of wisdom and knowledge to be found in the Book of Proverbs. It was the original curriculum, produced about 3,000 years ago intended as the basic education for a young man (or young woman). Could this wisdom be just as relevant and just as important now, even after being displaced by a thousand “new and improved” systems of thought? At the very least, Christian parents should be most interested in providing this compendium of knowledge to their children from their earliest years.

Our children should be able to internalize and apply the principles found in the Book of Proverbs from their earliest years. If our children will be rooted in all 1,000-plus lessons found in Proverbs before they reach adulthood, they should begin to work through them as early as 8 or 9 years of age.

This workbook suggests an active approach to learning by the use of four basic steps. They are read, think, hide, and apply and is explained on the first page. Each chapter covers a Proverbs chapter and includes a select memory verse, a vocabulary section, a word search, and chapter questions. Discussion type questions reference further verses to read. The cover is cute but the book is without any illustrations. I like the illustration free, distraction free look. Uses NKJV and includes an answer key. Paperback, 200 pages. Highly recommend.
