My Happy Pumpkin God's Love Shining Through Me By Crystal Bowman

Book Description:  This book shares with young children the delight of picking out and carving your first pumpkin and compares this experience to God choosing us and shaping us to his delight. Just as the candle we put in a pumpkin glows, so does God's light shine in us.

My Thoughts:  I love fall season so when I saw this cute book I fell in love with the sweet little mouse and the happy colors.
I'm always on the lookout for books to place in our church nursery and this nice hardback book fit the bill.
This sweet story is short (nice for tiny attention spans) and the illustrations are sweet and colorful.  I actually wanted this book for the colors!  {smile}
My Happy Pumpkin is a cute story for little ones and as tiny hands hold the book it's okay if some cookie crumbs or juice dribbles on the book because an adult can easily wipe this book clean.
The story is simply shared as a likeness of people picking out a pumpkin and shaping it into a fine carving for fall.  Just as God picks us out and shapes us into His likeness with our light shining for all to see . . . just as a candle shines though the carved pumpkin.  {This is not a theological book just a sweet book for little ones}
This book would make a cute fall gift for that special little one!
