While out on a hike, kaboojie Jam comes across a beautiful garden and makes a new friend who is wise, wooly, and gentle. Every day, Jam listens to Lamb's stories and learns about love and forgiveness. Jam doesn't always make good decisions or do the right thing, but Jam remembers her love for Lamb, and knows he loves her even more.
Join Jam, a spirited kaboojie bug with a passion for hiking and exploration, in her heartwarming adventure. While on a hike, Jam encounters a wise and wooly lamb named Lamb, whom she quickly comes to love and admire. Alongside their friend Dove, Lamb and Jam embark on a journey of love, joy, and peace. However, a mischievous goat threatens their harmony with a naughty plan, testing Jam's trust. Caught in the goat's prank, Jam inadvertently hurts Lamb, but instead of anger, she finds forgiveness and encouragement from her dear friend. Meanwhile, as Jam gathers bouquets for Lamb, a pesky bellbird disrupts her efforts, destroying her gifts. A confrontation with the greedy bellbird results in an accidental injury, leading Jam to Lamb for healing and solace. Throughout their adventures, Lamb imparts valuable lessons on forgiveness, kindness, and the importance of extending love to those who need it most. This heartwarming tale reminds us of the joy that comes from selflessness, especially when others' needs surpass our own. With captivating illustrations showcasing the beauty of New Zealand landscapes and expressive characters, 'Kaboojie Jam and the Wise Wooly Lamb' is a thoughtful picture book that invites meaningful conversations about peer pressure, compassion, forgiveness, and the transformative power of kindness in bringing joy and peace.
