What an excellent book to read during the month of love - Humble Bumbles Humble Heart; A Book of Virtues written and illustrated by Amy Meyer Allen.
Joe was so excited when he saw this book and immediately flipped through the pages and spent much of the morning looking at the adorable illustrations. When it came time to reading it aloud my 9 year old and 7 year old actually sat down to listen as well. Though I would say it's more geared towards toddlers and kindergartners the lessons are great for those of any age.
Chapters include titles such as "Humble Honeybee Learns about Humility" and "Daniel Dog Learns about Faithfulness". Each chapter begins with a definition of a word and ends with a Bible verse that corresponds with the lesson.
Unlike many Christian children's books these stories are simple, keep the children entertained, and preach without losing the child's interest.
It's an adorable, sturdy book which would be perfect for a Valentine or Easter gift! You can learn more at Tyndale Kids or Humble Bumbles.
