Chapter One

Dear Parents, Grandparents, and Teachers,

Many years ago, God entrusted me with these precious stories. Waking me in the middle of the night, He gave me each character's name and virtue. When I was going through an especially difficult time in my life, God humbled me, and I learned to depend on Him for everything. Because God makes all things new, He also gave me a new name for these characters—Humble Bumbles. At the same time, I fell in love with His Word and was able to see an incredible transformation in my thinking and behavior as I applied His truth to my life.

These stories come from the depths of my soul. I can identify with all the characters as they learn valuable lessons about how to become the virtues they represent. For example, Lydia Lamb learns to comfort others after she is comforted by the shepherd.

As children grow and mature, it is important to teach them God's principles. By reflecting the virtues that are inherent in God's character, we can share His love with a world that so desperately needs the hope of Jesus.

As you read these stories together, it is my prayer that both you and your children will relate to each of these flawed characters as they learn to become more like Jesus in their thoughts, words, and actions. May we all take these virtues to heart so that we can shine like stars in the darkness around us.

Humbly, Amy

Those who are wise will shine as bright as the sky, and those who lead many to righteousness will shine like the stars forever. Daniel 12:3

HUMILITY: having a gentle and mild spirit; not being proud

Humble Honeybee

Learns about Humility

Humble Honeybee lives in a beehive on a farm that belongs to Babo Bear.

Humble's job is to collect nectar from flowers. Whew! It is very hard work!

    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.

    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.
    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.

    "Humble Bumbles Humble Heart : A Book of Virtues" by A

    "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.

    I recently had the chance to review a children's book titled &qu

    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.

    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.

    Disclosure of Material Connection: I was provided with a free copy of this book by Tyndale House Publishers in exchange for my honest opinion.
