This is a great book for young children. There are nine stories
This is a great book for young children. There are nine stories in the book and each story discusses a different virtue. The virtues that were discussed were humility, love, thoughtfulness, faithfulness, mercy, encouragement, comfort, courage, and joy. The author starts each story with a definition of the virtue in the story. She does an excellent job of defining each virtue in a kid friendly manner. The author also ends each story with a bible verse and a question. The question helps the child think more about the virtue and how it applies to their own life.Was this review helpful?

I would recommend this book to anyone who has young children and would like to teach them about virtues.

I was pleasantly surprised at how big it was! I was expecting a board book in the 6" size range. "Humble Heart", however is 8x8" with 190 pages! It has a padded hard cover and very bright, simple, and colorful illustrations.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
I really liked the characters with their flaws that made them easy to relate to and that it defined each character trait/virtue to make sure the kids knew what they were talking about. I also liked the fact that the book had a "reality check" question at the end of each of the 9 chapters and a Bible verse to help the child apply the virtue to their life.

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.

I recently had the chance to review a children's book titled "Humble Bumble's Humble Heart: A Book of Virtues" written and illustrated by Amy Meyer Allen.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
First of all, the book itself is absolutely darling. The colors are bright. The illustrations are not only enjoyable to look at, also but draw conversation about the virtuous topic being covered. My only concern is that the paper is a bit thin for a children's book such as this. I know if my children were smaller, this would be a book we would read from again and again and I'm not sure how the pages would handle that kind of "love"!
The book covers nine virtues in separate stories that are simply wonderful. They are short enough for little people's attention spans, yet explain in a very simple manner the definition of the topic virtue. A question is asked at the end of each story to get the young listener (and the reader!) to think if they have ever shown that virtue to others. A Bible verse ends each story.
Although this book is clearly meant for small children, my two tweens thought it was absolutely adorable.
A great book. I would give it 10 stars if I could.
