Children’s Corner: Pumpkin Patch Blessings

14 Sep

51g-oviwlpl-_sx497_bo1204203200_Pumpkin Patch Blessings celebrates fall and shows little ones there are blessings all around us, especially in the pumpkin patch! The sweet rhyming text by Kim Washburn and whimsical illustrations by Jacqueline East bring autumn alive for readers young and old as they take in the fun of the fall season and remember how much they have to be grateful for.



Kim Washburn began her career in Christian publishing with Focus on the Family. While she worked on their Clubhouse Jr. magazine, two of her original stories were recognized by the Evangelical Press Association, including first place in the fiction category in 2006. Currently Kim stays home – and stays on her toes – with her eleven-year-old daughter and nine-year-old twin sons.

Jacqueline East has been illustrating children’s books for over twenty years. Her style is warm, colorful and lively. She also works in black and white and commissions include educational, trade, publishing, greetings and advertising.

My Impressions:

Pumpkin everything — from lattes and muffins to milk shakes and candles — seems to be the hallmark of Fall. Well why not include the kids in the pumpkin craze with an adorable book by Kim Washburn? Pumpkin Patch Blessings emphasizes this special time of the year, from the rich colors of the leaves to the abundance of a pumpkin patch. With rhymes and cute-as-a-button illustrations, this book is a fun read for families. Pair it with your own pumpkin patch outing or family baking time and you’ll have memories in the making! This book is full of excitement, fun and joy and a reminder of the many things to be thankful for. It is definitely a recommended read!


Audience: ages 4-8.
