I'm looking for a book of quotes for kids. Something I can pull out periodically & read. And then we can discuss the saying & its meaning, significance, etc. Famous quotes from all walks of life--philosophy, funny people, etc. Something that's geared towards 7-ish year olds, with food for thought they can reasonably ponder. Does a book like this exist? If so, please throw a title at me. Thanks!

I own The Concise Oxford Dictionary of Quotations, and The Routledge Dictionary of Latin Quotations.

Not specifically for kids, but I thought I'd mention them.

Journeys through Bookland has "100 choice quotations." They inspired my Dd (who was older than 7 at the time :) ) to start keeping a commonplace book of quotes that impacted her. She has maintained it for yrs over numerous volumes (which she sometimes decorates, writes in calligraphy, etc)

We have a copy of https://www.amazon.c...ords=quotations that I picked up at a library book sale. It's supposedly for grades 4-8, but my 6- and 8-year-old do fine with it.

I thought of this one, too, especially if you are a fan of the book. My oldest will use it for copywork next year.

Thanks for the recommendation! It looks like what I'm looking for so I got it off Amazon for $1--not bad!

LOL, we got this one too! I just pulled it out during read aloud last night & she liked it. She recognized a lot of the people quoted but was disapppointed Earhart wasn't included. I like how it's broken into categories.
