Humble Bumbles Humble Heart by Amy Meyer Allen - Book Review


Humble Heart, by Amy Meyer Allen, is subtitled A Book of Virtues.  It is actually a collection of nine stories featuring various animal characters, each one spotlighting one virtue.  These include: humility, love, thoughtfulness, faithfulness, mercy, encouragement, comfort, courage, and joy.  The characters, Humble Honeybee for instance, are put in a situation where they can show or experience each virtue.  They then learn a lesson.  The end of each story poses a question to the reader, ie: Have you ever been too proud to ask for help?  The art is very cartoony, but fits the stories.

I enlisted my kids to help with the review, since they are more of the target audience.  Lexi (age almost-9) thought it was really good and had some really good virtues. Griffin (age 6) really liked the art. Cami (age 6) liked the story about thoughtfulness starring Caroline Cat.

Overall, I believe this book is good for kids pre-school age and younger.  It would make a nice addition to a church library or a home with young children.

I received a copy of this book from Tyndale House Publishers in exchange for an honest review.
