Julia Dweck strikes again with yet another greatly illustrated rhyming story. This time it is about Humpfree, a camel who doesn’t have any humps.
The story is about a Humpfree, a camel who notices that he is different and goes off in search of some humps in order to fit in with the other camels. He is so determined to be like the other camels that his search leads him to some strange ideas for humps.
As you can see from the cover picture he tries balloons tied to string in order to fit in, but they don’t last long thanks to some pesky birds! He tried boulders, feathers and even porcupines, but none of them worked.
Downhearted he comes across a man who tells him that he is special, and that there is nothing wrong with that.
The message throughout this story is clear and even my son was aware of it, and this story actually came to us at the right time as we are teaching him all about how being different isn’t a bad thing, and that everyone is different in some shape or form.
True to form we have some fun facts at the end of the book – I actually love this little feature in Julia’s books 🙂
