Lamby the Lonely Lamb – My 4th Publication – 2014!

I will be featuring a different book in each of these posts until I have featured all 31 of my books. In this post the spotlight is on Lamby the Lonely Lamb. Lamby was published in March of 2014.

Lamby is happy to be here to share a little about his book. He is a littl.e shy and feeling quite lonely. Please pick up a copy and take him home to your children. You will make him happy and feel no less lonely.


Lamby is a very different lamb because of his color. He is 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 Lamby lives.

This book was dedicated to my granddaughter when she was four years old. She requested that I write a book about her lamb but I had to make it purple, her favorite color. It was a challenge at first but then the story came to me. She was happy with the results, thank goodness. She was even happier when Lamby won a Silver Medal – Mom’s Choice Awards!

Gigi Sedlmayer, Book Excellence Award Finalist winning author of the Talon series5.0 out of 5 stars Everybody needs acceptance Reviewed in the United States on March 12, 2015Verified PurchaseLonely Lamby was alone and lay into the meadow of purple flowers. You see, Lamby fell as a baby into purple dye. And now the other nice white lambs didn’t want to play with him.

One day, Lamby lay in the meadow dreaming of acceptance, when he suddenly saw a wolf approaching the other white lambs. He jumped up and down, shouting to let the others know about the danger.

The white lambs ran to the barn, hiding, He had saved them. But now the wolf was looking for him. But Lamby lay flat in the meadow and the wolf couldn’t see him. So he trotted away, hungry, missing out of his meal.

The white lambs were grateful that Lamby saved them but Lamby wanted to be accepted for himself not just for what he could do.

And then one day came a little girl, Leah, dressed in… But I won’t spoil it. You have to read the story to find out what happen to Lamby.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Cute Story Teaching A Lesson In Adapting Reviewed in the United States on May 7, 2014Verified PurchaseLamby The Lonely Lamb is a cute story teaching a lesson in adapting, but not conforming to what the norm is. In other words, just because you are different (in this case a different color) doesn’t necessarily mean you can’t fit in: beauty is in the eye of the beholder. In this case it was, a little girl dressed in purple from head to toe, exactly the same color of the little lamb, who was different than all the other lambs, which were white. It also teaches a lesson in tolerance for those who are different than the so-called norm. Janice Spina, the author hits just the right note in teaching a valuable lesson in acceptance in a world where being different doesn’t matter after all. The illustrations were adorable and well done.

5.0 out of 5 stars The story of a purple lamb Reviewed in the United States on June 18, 2015Verified PurchaseLamby fell into a vat of purple dye and was purple from head to toe. 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.
Lamby the Lonely Lamb is a adorably written and illustrated picture book for the young reader. It was written for the author’s granddaughter.

Mrs.D.5.0 out of 5 stars Nobody Wants To Be Rejected Reviewed in the United States on January 22, 2018“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!

5.0 out of 5 stars LOVE THE ENDING! GREAT STORY! Reviewed in the United States on April 14, 2014Lamby 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’

I feel pure joy writing for children and hope with God’s help and blessing to continue to write many more fun adventures for children to read and enjoy. I do enjoy writing for MG/PT/YA and 18+ too!

Blessings & Hugs! Stay Safe, Stay Well and God Bless!
