I love receiving new children’s books to read and review. I like to share the ones that I find interesting and good with my nieces and nephews. I was excited to receive My Happy Pumpkin to read and review.
This book is a rhyming story about a pumpkin that was carved, and how God makes his children new just like his children made the pumpkin new.
Are kind of cute, but I’ve seen cuter.
How strong is the book?
This is a solid and sturdy boardbook that won’t fall apart the moment children get a hold of it.
Who the book is for:
Babies and toddlers and maybe some preschoolers.
What I liked:
The rhyming text is nice/makes it easy and fun to read.
The idea is cute.
Gives a nod to Halloween in a way that won’t offend those Christians who don’t celebrate the holiday.
What I didn’t like:
This book isn’t exactly theologically sound. I didn’t like how the book emphasizes being good and obedient as if that is the way to be saved.
Overall, I’m not exactly a fan of this book.
I give My Happy Pumpkin 3 out of 5 stars.
I received this book free to review from BookLook. The opinions expressed in this review are my true thoughts and feeling regarding this book. I am disclosing this information in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 255.
