Humble Heart : A Book of Virtues

"Humble Bumbles Humble Heart : A Book of Virtues" by Amy Meyer Allen is a children's book that helps explain Biblical virtues through friendly animal characters and easy to understand, kid-friendly language. Featuring characters such as Humble Honeybee, Daniel Dog, Lydia Lamb, and Felicity Frog, "Humble Heart" uses short stories to feature each of the virtues, using kid-friendly stories to help them understand virtues such as forgiveness, joy, thoughtfulness, and mercy. 

What I enjoyed about this book was that even though some of these virtues seem a bit complicated for young children to fully understand, Amy Meyer Allen did a wonderful job in breaking them down and making it simple. Each short story features one of the virtues, and one of the friendly characters, using a storyline that young children can easily understand. The language used in the stories is also kid-friendly, which helps aid children in their understanding of these virtues. 

I have a four year old daughter who loved this book, and I really love that it is helping her to understand Biblical virtues at a young age. The end of each story poses a question to the child to help them further grasp the virtue that was presented in that story, as well as a Bible verse that parent and child can read together to help reiterate the Biblical value of that virtue. 

FTC DISCLOSURE: I received this book from Tyndale House Publishers in exchange for an honest review. I was under no obligated to write a positive review.
