Quotes for Kids--Does This Book Exist?

Recommended Posts

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)

My kids really liked 365 Days of Wonder: Mr. Browne's Precepts by R.J. Palacio (same author of the book Wonder). http://amzn.to/2teRKUn

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

We have a copy of https://www.amazon.com/Scholastic-Treasury-Quotations-Children-Adrienne/dp/0590271466/ref=sr_1_6?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1500159055&sr=1-6&keywords=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.

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.

I just got this yesterday & I am thoroughly impressed! Thanks ever so much for this recommendation!
