Hidden Treasures

Hidden Treasures

This is my favorite Bible reference for the deaf learner! If you are familiar with anything Doorposts creates, this one matches in quality and Biblical truth.

The hidden treasures referred to is the precious book of Proverbs. The beginning of the book is the obvious explainination of how to use the book. Also included is ways to include Proverbs into your everyday life. The rest of the book is full of children’s illustrations of various Proverbs.

If you have ever read any of the Proverbs and tried to explain them to a hearing child, never-the-less a deaf child, then you understand how abstract they can be. These illustrations fill that gap! Most are very literal drawings of a particular proverb, which give the child a picture to directly relate to a meaning. We would make copies of a chosen proverb and allow the children to color them as we discussed its meaning and how we can relate that to our life. Once the child has the hang of that, they can start creating their own proverb pictures! What fun!

This book includes 90 Proverb illustrations – a great springboard.
