Small children will eagerly open this pumpkin-shaped board book to discover the delightful story and colorful illustrations, by artist Claudine Gevry. Using sing-song rhyme, author Crystal Bowman describes a fun fall tradition-carving a pumpkin face. But she adds a twist that helps preschoolers grasp the concept of God's life-changing love for them. Just like we scoop out the inside a pumpkin, God makes us clean on the inside too.
Crystal Bowman loves writing books for kids. Her books come in all shapes and sizes and many of them have become best sellers. Whether her stories are written in playful rhythm and rhyme, or short sentences for beginning readers, she tries to make them so enjoyable that kids will want to read them over and over again. But the most important part, she says, is to teach children that God loves them and cares about them very much.
