Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Judy Chernak
Famous bon mots excerpted from the Biblical books of Proverbs, Ecclesiastes and the Song of Solomon and from Apocryphal books of Ecclesiasticus and the Wisdom of Solomon, this slim volume is richly illustrated with clips of artwork housed in some of the world's well-known museums. Among the best is "Open not thine heart to every man, lest he requite thee with a shrewd turn" (Ecclesiasticus 8:19) highlighted with Georges de la Tour's "The Cheat with the Ace of Diamonds" behind his back and a most suspicious matron eyeing his innocent face. Whistler's famous mother illustrates "The hoary head is a crown of glory, if it be found in the way of righteousness" (Proverbs l6:31); and "Fear God, and keep his commandments: for this is the whole duty of man" (Ecclesiastes 12:13) is accompanied (anachronistically) by Pieter Brueghel the Younger's "Saint John the Baptist Preaching." A nice gift for older children with a Biblical bent.
