Summer Reads: Pumpkin Patch Blessings

Zonderkidz; 18 pages; $8.99; Amazon

Arriving in bookstores on August 2nd from Zonderkidz is the  picture-board book, titled Pumpkin Patch Blessings. Written by Kim Washburn, the 18-page book features illustrations by Jacqueline East.

Yes, it's still summer, but the stores will be getting autumn clothes as well as Halloween goodies on their shelves next month. Zonderkidz is jumping the gun a little early with the August 2nd release of Pumpkin Patch Blessings. However, it'll give the title plenty of time to find young readers before autumn actually begins.

Like most Zonderkidz titles, this book does mention God a few times. There's not really an actual plot here, but the narration explains to the reader that autumn is God's creation; though the illustrations shows a young brother and sister exploring all the wonders of what the Fall season brings; such as crunching on the falling leaves, eating corn on the cob, going on a hayride, and picking out a pumpkin from the pumpkin patch.

Final Thoughts: Just by glancing at the cover, I had originally thought the book would be about two young bunnies, but I was completely wrong; though the bunnies are featured on two pages where they are exploring in the pumpkin patch.

Like I already mentioned, the book doesn't have an actual plot, but instead it features a narration that explains all the wonderful blessings God gives us during the autumn months. While God is mentioned a few times throughout the book, never once did it fell forced upon the reader, but instead it flows naturally within the narration.

Overall, Pumpkin Patch Blessings is a cute little picture book that young readers will enjoy.
