Sapientia est pulchrum.

I am a beginner, studying from Learn to Read Latin by Keller and Russell. The Workbook, in Chapter III, Drill 24-28, Sentence 9, asks for a translation of Sapientia est pulchrum. There are no macrons. At first glance, this seemed trivially easy. But, I can't seem to conjure up a translation with agreement between sapientia and pulchrum. Would appreciate any help.

Books about Classical Greek Literature

Is there a book which exists which would be a survey of Classical Greek Literature in the sense of Duff's Survey of Latin Literature? Duff wrote one volume about the "Golden Age" and another about the "Silver Age". I know this is kind of a tough question!!! Any help would be appreciated!
