Proverbs

If you could sum up Proverbs for the People in three words, what would they be?

Learning the moral.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Proverbs for the People?

I don't remember one that stands out, but all of the stories give a moral. It's experience the trials and triumphs of others.

What does the narrator bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Good narrator.
