In Robbie the Royal Messenger, Papa tells Billy the exciting story of Robbie’s journey from gathering firewood for Stirling Castle to becoming the King’s most trusted messenger. As Billy learns, Robbie’s transformation is made possible through a simple act of kindness.
This story set in early Scotland shares the importance of being kind, especially to our neighbors who are isolated and lonely. Through Robbie, we see that kindness always leaves us better off, and sometimes it’s even repaid many times over.
