Join us for Wisdom & Wonder: our 2017 Summer Reading Challenge focused on Proverbs!
Wisdom & Wonder
We are going to be diving into the book of Proverbs with the help of Marty Machowski’s Wise-Up family devotional. In addition, families are encouraged to choose one of the “anchor” books below that best fits their children’s ages. We will be discussing these particular books in light of the themes in Proverbs this summer. There will be an additional booklist for each week that includes extra titles that coordinate with that week’s theme, but these titles will carry through the whole summer!

Wise Words by Peter Leithart is a delightful collection of literary fables that feature various Proverbs as the morals. Perfect as a read aloud, this also makes a fun independent read if your independent readers happen to sneak the book off to bed with them. Read our Wise Words review for more information. Book may be purchased through amazon (affiliate link below); it may also be in your church library if you have one!
The Wilderking Trilogy by Jonathan Rogers is an action-packed, fantasy adventure based on the life of King David. Feechies from the swamp, a shepherd boy, and prophecy come to life in a landscape reminiscent of the American South. These books will work as a read aloud or independent reads!
