Humble Heart

"Humble Bumbles Humble Heart : A Book of Virtues" by Amy Meyer Allen is an adorable children's book that features Biblical virtues through an adorable story featuring animal friends. This book teaches young children the importance of the virtues: humility, love, thoughtfulness, faithfulness, mercy, encouragement, comfort, courage, and joy. Each virtue has its own short story featuring a different animal character - for example, the story that explains mercy features Percie Pig. The stories themselves use easy to understand words, perfect for young children, and they really break down the virtue to its most basic form so that a young child can truly get a grasp of what each virtue is about. The last page of each story asks a simple question, designed for young children, to help them tie in how this virtue can be present in their own life. It also features a Bible verse that reinforces that particular virtue. The illustrations in this book are vivid and inviting. This is a wonderfully written, thoughtfully designed book that is ideal for children ages 3 and up. I would highly recommend it for parents or grandparents of any young child. I loved it, and so did my 4 year old!
