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 teacherís 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 Godís Word. Ė Donna Eggett,
