Humble Heart: A Book of Virtues

Humble Bumbles' Humble Heart a Book of Virtues by Amy Meyer Allen is a collection of nine stories that teach children about the Biblical virtues of; humility, love, thoughtfulness, faithfulness, mercy, encouragement, comfort, courage and joy.  The stories are bright and simple and the illustrations follow suit.  They are understandable and relatable for young children.  They are also charming and enduring for older children to enjoy and learn from as well.  There is a definition of each term at the beginning of each story and an applicable scripture verse at the end.  My children loved going through this book of virtues with me.  We read one a night during our devotion time.  There are fun features too that many children books have.  Humble honey bee can be found on each page and there is a highlighted item from the illustration on the opposite page of text like a hat or a flower which can then also be found in the illustration.  They loved playing this game as we went through the stories.  This is definitely a book we will read time and time again. 

I received a copy of this book from Tyndale Publishing for the purpose of this review.
