Excellent For Family Devotions

We have three children and have read this book over and over through the years. There are several other books in the "Miller" series and this one is one of our favorites. The stories bring the teachings of the Bible into the lives of young children in a way they can easily realate. The Miller family is a very conservative family but we found that even though we did not hold to the same customs they do our children were able to relate and connect very well to the lessons in each story.

My Children Like It

Loaded with practical character lessons for children. I have been reading this aloud to my 7 and 5 year old. They get it and respond positively to the stories.

Kids LOVE it

This book is a compilation of short stories or chapters that each involve one or more of the Miller family children. Each story presents a life lesson learned by one or more of the kids, usually as the result of an "ordinary" childlike infraction (feuding, disobedience, neglecting duties, etc.). Then, we see one or both of the parents gently but appropriately correcting the matter, typically with the telling of one of their own life lessons, and a reference from Proverbs. These little stories provide excellent moral lessons. I read this book aloud to my young children, and overall I found it to be interesting, plainly but adequately written, and useful as a "teaching" aid, but my 5-stars really come from the level of enthusiasm that my kids showed for this book. My copy was illustrated (some of the illustrations repeated throughout the book), and my kids liked the pictures. To them, this was as good as a C.S. Lewis book or another "classic." Their vote is good enough for me, and to think that they may model the lessons from the book makes this only better.

Great evening read with your children

This was a great book to review with my Children (8 & 6). It was a fun read with great examples of applying scripture to everyday life. My children enjoyed it and were excited to sit down and interact. Our daughter started finding and highlighting the main scripture associated with the story in her bible. Being a dad I am always looking for always to teach the bible and it's principles to my children with out going way over their heads. The is a great place to start. Enjoy

A lot of godly wisdom in a little package

I highly recommend this book! My whole family loves this book, as well as the others in the series. My children ask for it every night, and the first time my husband read it to them, he was so impressed that he asked if I could get more books in the series. We love the godly wisdom and the practical, real-life stories that illustrate the principles in each chapter. I admit, I even get a little choked up at some of the stories. If only my husband and I had these books when we were children -- we could have saved ourselves a lot of struggles and pain with the godly wisdom taught in these books!
