Old Time Proverbs to Think About Today

Old Time Proverbs to Think About Today

illustrated by Honor B. Appleton

Do your children know what a proverb is? A “proverb” is a short, simple saying that expresses a truth or piece of advice based on common sense or practical experience.

Here’s a wonderful collection of old-fashioned proverbs, illustrated with some delightful full color cartoons of children that dramatize one application of the saying.

But that’s just a beginning. Go one step further, and this little book becomes a great discussion starter for parent and child. As you go through these proverbs, ask your little readers:
What is the meaning of this old proverb? How does this picture demonstrate this old proverb? What are some other ways that this proverb could be illustrated? Is there any lesson in this old proverb that we should remember?

Just try it with your young readers. You’ll love this colorful, fanciful little collection! Highly recommended!
