Book Review: Humble Heart
Humble Heart a book of virtues is a sweet little book for introducing the preschool set to living a virtuous life. Author and illustrator Amy Meyer Allen was inspired to write write these sweet stories with adorable animal characters.
Each Humble Bumble character in this book has a story that teaches little ones about a different virtue. The book is filled with bright colorful illustrations. I particularly liked the overall cheerful feel of the book. At the end of each story that is scripture that relates to the story. These would be great for introducing little ones to memory verses.
My toddler has enjoyed paging through this book and looking at all of the sunny illustrations, but she will also happily sit and listen to the stories. For the most part, I find the stories to be sweet and written in a way that will reach children in the 2-5 year old range. There are, however, a few stories where I feel like the text feels forced, but most of the book flows nicely.
I was provided with a review copy of Humble Heart in exchange for my honest review by the publisher, Tyndale Kids. You can take a peek inside this bookat Amazon.
