It’s his first time in a big caravan, and Amel the camel cannot see the wisdom of making such a long journey (by following a star, no less!) just to bring gifts to a baby in a tiny place like Bethlehem. After a discouraging detour in Herod’s Jerusalem, Amel learns all about love, prayer, and sacrifice as shown by Kings Caspar, Melchior, and Balthazar. Amel discovers that what is truly wise and noble can be hidden in very surprising places.
Amel the camel is the not-so-tiny virtue hero of WISDOM. He invites readers to admire his hero, King Balthazar. Wisdom Finds a Way is part of Cathy Gilmore’s Virtue Heroes(TM)️ storybook series. Gently reframing our notions of super heroes, each story unfolds through the eyes of an animal character witnessing a major moment in Christian history. Each super sidekick is the icon of a specific virtue. Readers who get to know and love these heroes will effortlessly learn the virtues they represent. What a great way to teach our kids that heroic virtue is REAL super power!
“Beautifully illustrated, Cathy Gilmore’s virtue series continues to delight and captivate the young with this powerful and delightful book. I love it!” -Karen Boyce, author of “The Sisters of the Last Straw” series
