Pumpkin Parable . . .

I love children's books. I taught reading for many years & always enjoyed finding & purchasing great books at garage sales & stores for my classroom. Recently I saw a wonderful book, The Pumpkin Patch Parable, being recommended on Elena's blog (

Yesterday I bought the book at Mardel,,
a Christian & education store where my son works.

Last night I read the book & was so delighted with the content. It's a great book! I encourage you to purchase it for your child or grandchild.
I'm giving this to Ethan to add to his library.

This is what's written on the back of the book.
This charming story for children illustrates how a loving farmer can turn a simple pumpkin into a simply glorious sight. In the same way, God's transforming love can fill each of our hearts with joy and light.

Liz Curtis Higgs created The Pumpkin Patch Parable as a way to share the Good News with her own children each harvest season, never imagining her story would one day encourage children all around the world.

Awwww that sounds like such a sweet book. I just absolutely LOVE books and am always on the lookout for books in Lexi's reading range that I think she will enjoy. Unfortunately, I have a child that HATES to read and I have to make her. :(
