I found this book while searching and I am so glad we did! This is such a sweet approach to the nativity story, told from the point of view of Humphrey. Humphrey is a young camel in one of the three wise men's caravan. He's young and lazy and quite the complainer but he has a good heart that comes out in the end. The illustrations are absolutely charming and the story is adorable. It isn't beat you over the head religious but tells the story of the birth of Jesus with humor and a sense of wonder and awe. My kids absolutely loved it!
This was the one book that the kids went to over and over even with multiple other choices available - my 5 year old wanted us to read it every night along with the new selection. We love a lazy, slightly chilly camel named Humphrey and look forward to reading this one every year. Next year it will be the first one we open so we can enjoy it over and over!
