Hi, it's me, Esmé, reviewing my very own book! I am two AND A HALF now! Though I tell everybody I'm three, cuz it's easier to hold up three fingers than two and a half.

Back to the book... 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 cool pumpkin/sunflower shape! The book is not too long, and it rhymes, so it is easy to sit through the whole thing. Plus, there is a mouse to look for on ALL the page

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 dri

This book was well-written, beautifully illustrated, and had a great message! Perfect to read during the fall or all year long to teach children how to live for God! It's short enough that young readers/listeners can get through the whole story in one sitting, and it rhymes, which is always a plus!
