Amish Proverbs Kindle Giveaway Book Tour

My Take on the Book:  This is such an awesome book of wisdom!  The chapters in this book include: Time, Money, Faith, Children & Family, In Word & Deed, Work Ethic, Handling Adversity, Education, Community, Character and Just for Fun!  It is explained that "proverbs are short sentences drawn from long experiences."  That makes total sense to me.  I never really thought about it before but each culture has their own proverbs and as the book pointed out, to know the people and their  culture, know their proverbs. 

Here are a few of my favorites:  If you let your children have their own way, you must not complain if they give you trouble. Swallowing words before you say them is so much better than having to eat them afterward. Just when the caterpillar thought the world was over, it because a butterfly.   

The pictures are simple and beautiful in the book.  This is a book you can read over and over.  It would make a great gift for any one at any age.
