CLIP Book: Humphrey's First Palm Sunday

Author, Illustrator (and Fireflies' friend!):  Carol Heyer


All Humphrey wanted was to be lead camel in his caravan.

Believe me, Humphrey, I understand. And so does every child who never gets picked first when sides are chosen for a game, or who longs to be leader in "follow the leader".  It's simply a matter of deserving our rightful place - isn't it? 

Through his somewhat comical, but ever so endearing antics, Humphrey displays his earnestness once again at wanting to be recognized for the greatness he feels he knows is deep within him.


Illustration from Humphrey's First Christmas by Carol Heyer
How easy it is to identify with this loving camel! For it is only when he takes his eyes off himself and recognizes the man, once a child to whom he had given his own blanket, that he is content to be a follower. 

                           May we all, as Humphrey did, follow the


"GLORIOUS, Most Magnificent and Wondrous Leader of All... 

they call Him...

Savior."




Are you looking for a new book to share with your child this Easter?  One that is both humorous and endearing?  Then order Carol Heyer's book today in time for Palm Sunday!   

We are crazy about Humphrey and know you will be too.

Thank you so much Mary for this wonderful review of Humphrey's First Palm Sunday! I'm glad you can identify with Humphrey! I always said I channeled my inner camel when I wrote these stories. I love Fireflies and am always following your wonderful blog! Humphrey and I send everyone our wishes for a Happy Easter season! Carol

P.S. It was so much fun to learn that this is the year of the camel. I'm sure Humphrey would be pleased! :0)
