This is a post I wrote in 2017 about my book, Lamby the Lonely Lamb. Give your children some fun summer reading that will help instill good behavior at the same time. Happy Reading! Reading is good for your health! Did you know that?
Lamby the Lonely Lamb
There once was a lamb named Lamby,
Who had no friends or family.
He fell into purple dye.
And he started to cry.
Until a girl took him home to her family.
Lamby won a Mom’s Choice Award in 2014.
Lamby is a very different lamb because of his color. He is very lonely and only wants to be accepted by the other lambs. Find out what lesson Lamby learns when a little girl, Leah, comes to the farm where Lamb lives.
All Jemsbooks’ children’s books have life lessons within the stories. Children learn from Lamby that it is okay to be different, love thyself for the differences that make you unique, accept and be kind to others.
Jemsbooks instill good behavior in young children by repetition and rhyming. Children will have fun reading while they learn how to behave politely and with respect to others.
Lamby was written especially for my granddaughter, Leah. She requested that I write a story about her precious little stuffed animal, Lamby, and make him purple! Well, it was quite a challenge but I came through. She was thrilled and excited when Lamby won a Mom’s Choice Award!
Check out the reviews on Amazon:
“Lamby the Lonely Lamb” is ignored by the other lambs because he is different. Lamby’s coat is purple not white, so the other lambs do not want to play with him. This changed after a heroic act by Lamby, but the little purple lamb was still not happy because he sensed that his new status among his fellow lambs was not due to genuine acceptance. Labmy finally finds happiness when Little Leah, who loves him just the way he is and adopts him. Author Janice Spina and her talented husband, illustrator John Spina, once again relate to children a valuable life lesson in a most entertaining fashion.
If you have not already, enrich your kid’s library with “Lamby the Lonely Lamb” and the Spina Team’s previous books, “Louey the Lazy Elephant”, “Ricky the Rambunctious Raccoon”, and “Jerry the Crabby Crayfish”.
Lamby the Lonely Lamb is a wonderful story about a little purple lamb, because of his color the other lambs did not want to play with him. Feeling sad and lonely, he hid out in the field, amid the purple flowers. No one could see him, not even the big bad wolf that crept in–heading straight to the little white lambs, ready to snatch up his meal for the day. But Lamby was quick– he jumped to his feet and gave a big shout to all his friends. The lambs heard the purple lamb’s cry and quickly ran to the barn away from the wolf’s hungry eye. The puzzled wolf looked all around for Lamby, but could not see him!
After the lambs were saved by Lamby, they gathered around to thank him–and promised to always play with him. This made him so sad, because he wanted to be accepted for who he is and not the heroic act he performed. This story has a wonderful life lesson for kids–and a great ending!
Children, parents and teachers will love this entertaining book with its charming rhymes and colorful illustrations. Get your copy; it is definitely another amazing story to add to your collection, along with the author’s other books: ‘Louey the Lazy Elephant’ ‘Ricky the Rambunctious Raccoon’ and Jerry the Crabby Crayfish’
