Humberto is a hamster that loves to read. Except for when he’s riding his hamster wheel, he has his nose in a book. He even listens to audio books when he’s sleeping. Nothing wrong with a well-read hamster, that is until it gets in the way of forging friendships. Humberto doesn’t realize how precious friends are until a storm hits and places his would be friends in jeopardy. Will Humberto help them, or again put his books first?
This lovely picture book will show your children that selfless acts of kindness are more important than worldly possessions. They’ll also learn that reading is a gift that can be shared. Humberto proves to be every bit a hero, just like the ones he reads about in his books. Your kids will enjoy the story and the colorful illustrations too. The author has also written The Magic Violin, and Crash, both previously reviewed on Homeschoolbuzz.com.
