My Happy Pumpkin: God's Love Shining Through Me is written by Crystal Bowman and illustrated by Claudine Gevry. It is a colorful board book in a fun pumpkin shape! This rhyming book is great for ages 2-4 as it keeps their attention as they hunt for the cute mouse on each page!
The illustrations are bright and well drawn. There is a pumpkin carving in this story to lead to a gospel message. i was delighted that they used a pumpkin face for Christ instead of showing Halloween!
This book takes the art of carving a pumpkin and compares it to how our Heavenly Father scoops all the yucky, nasty sin out of our lives to rid us of all of that and make us a new creature in Him.
I will be passing on this book to my friends 1 year old this month on his first birthday! Cant wait to hear how he and his older sister enjoyed it!
