Book Review
Reviewed by for Readers' Favorite

The Wisdom of Solomon, by Wanda E. Brunstetter, like most of her books takes place in an Amish community. Solomon Lapp and his sister, Sara, live in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania. This delightful book is an anthology of twelve short stories, sure to please children 5-8 years of age. Each story begins with a scripture from Proverbs. The moral of the stories are easy to discern. Asking God before speaking, sharing, Jesus watches over you when you are sleeping, and having a happy heart are just a few of the lessons found in this book.

Illustrator Phil A. Smous uses bold colors to catch the eye of reader. Each illustration compliments the story. The glossary in the back of the book defines Amish words that may be unfamiliar. My copy of The Wisdom of Solomon is a hardback book, well-bound, and should hold up under repeated handling by children. Smudges and smears from little hands are easily washed off the cover. I’ve always enjoyed Wanda Brunstetter’s books, and this one did not disappoint me. I shared it with one of my grandsons. He was fascinated with the story and giggled at many of the adventures of Solomon, Sara, and their friends.

"The Wisdom of Solomon Lapp" is a wonderful book for children. The illustrations are beautiful and the stories are fun filled and all have great lessons for children and adults alike. Reading this book to your child can be a great bonding experience and open conversations about kindness, sharing, courage, and caring for others. A big winner in our household.

I have read almost all of Wanda Brunstetter's adult series books. My niece just recently learned how to read, so I thought I would get her some of the children's books. My niece has loved them. The Wisdom of Solomon is one of the books I got for my niece, and we read it together. I love how it teaches character along the story and brings out the love of God in a way that a child can understand. I will continue to get both the adult series books and now the children's books that I will enjoy with my niece for a very long time.
