The characters in each story are as varied as the biblical proverbs they reveal. Meet a chatty squirrel with a secret, or find out what happens when you run up against the Ministry of Nasty Smells. Sure to delight children ages five and up, but no promises theyll be asleep by the time the storys over.From the preface: My intention in Wise Words was to write stories that would appeal to children as stories- that would challenge parents who read to their children- that would illustrate biblical proverbs- and that would borrow imagery, plots, characters, settings, and themes from the Bible. Whether my stories appeal to children—other than my own, of course, who are deeply prejudiced—or challenge adults is, I suppose, for children and adults to judge.
