Lamby the Lonely Lamb – Award-Winning Children’s Book!

I wrote Lamby the Lonely Lamb for my granddaughter who was three years old at that time. She carried her favorite stuffed animal, a white lamb, everywhere. They were never apart.

She asked me one day to write a story about her lamb and make it purple. I had to think about this and finally came up with this story.

As with all Jemsbooks this one carries life lessons. The lessons in this sweet book are be kind to others and accept differences in others. This book is perfect for SPRING and for Easter time. What better time than to teach our children the importance of being kind to others no matter what color they are. We are all the same underneath in the eyes of our Creator.

This book won a Silver Medal in Mom’s Choice Awards. All parents will love this book for the important lessons that it conveys to children.



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.


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.

Here are some reviews from Amazon:

The other lambs didn’t want to play with Lamby because he was different. Lamby gets his wish to be accepted for whom he is, not for the way he looks.

Mrs.D.5.0 out of 5 starsNobody Wants To Be RejectedJanuary 22, 2018Format: Kindle Edition“Lamby the Lonely Lamb” is one of those books that expose children to the real world, where not everyone is kind and likes to share a place under the sun. Just as in real life, the young readers will learn how others feel when nobody wants to accept them. In her enlightening book, Janice Spina teaches children the lesson of acceptance. Children will easily follow the tale of the little purple lamb, which was different from other lambs because he was purple. As often happens in reality, the little purple loner was rejected from a group of white lambs, which did not want to bother with him because of his color. The lonely lamb spends most of his time with nature. Feeling blue and disappointed, he comforts himself in a field with the purple flowers. As in every tale with lambs, here comes the wolf!! NO, NO! He did not eat the sad little lamb, which blended in with the purple flowers. His eyes were on the white, snobby lambs that did not want to accept the purple lamb.

And guess who comes to the rescue?

In “Lamby the Lonely Lamb,” children will find themselves around animals that are acting like they do sometimes. This story has a happy ending and very useful life lesson. Through the story, the young readers will develop logic and compassion, and receive a good education about real-life situations. Sometime, someone may rescue you when you least expect it. A great teaching book with moral lessons!
