There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later. I facilitate a Bible study group, we call ourselves the bad girls of the Bible a good Shepherd Parish. A couple of the ladies bring their grandchildren with them on a night when there's no other babysitter, so we delight in a few young people in our group. For Halloween I bought a few of these books for these year-olds. I am happy to report that each of them love their new books and asks the grandmothers to read the books to them over and over again.
Our group enjoys Liz Curtis-Higgs book studies very much and we have read and discussed at least seven or eight of her books at this point and look forward to many more coming from Liz. One person found this helpful 2 people found this helpful. We have read this book to all four of our children over the last 10 years as we carve a pumpkin each year. It gives an excellent alternative to the darkness and ugliness of Halloween, with scriptures at the bottom of each page to support the beautiful story. This book can change the culture of Halloween for all believers, and bring the light of Christ to those who don't yet believe - both children and adults!
One person found this helpful. Board book Verified Purchase. I love Liz Curtis Higgs and her writing. Her Christian Historical Fiction novels were my introduction to the genre which for me today is a passion. I was delighted to discover she has also written a handful of children's novels in parable form with the gospel as the central message. I have an original copy of The Pumpkin Patch Parable from a few years ago, but when I heard that it was being republished as a giant board book, I was ecstatic!
After getting my hands on this giant board book, I'm absolutely delighted. Tommy Nelson has a great product in this book. Perfect for every family and the fall season. Finally we have a book to share with our children that reflects the same values that are important to us. As it says in a note from the author on the first page, "This book is NOT a celebration of Halloween With an applicable verse on each page bringing the story and the message in the bible alive this book is creative and meaningful.
The size is great, and AppleBlossom even as a toddler is excited to be able to touch the pages and flip them herself and I rest easy without the fear of her tearing the pages. Kindle Edition Verified Purchase. I was asked to be the storyteller at our Halloween party for our children at church. I ordered this on my Kindle then used the largest font so the kids could see the drawings.
The Pumpkin Patch Parable
The story with scripture verses captivated them. I asked them to pretend they were pumpkin seeds that were growing. As the plant leafed out in the story, I asked them to extend their arms. One four year old told his mother that above all the games and food, he loved the story the best. Oh, I dressed in bided overalls, plaid shirt and straw hat. It was special to be to have my costume look like the farmer in the story! The story talks about how a farmer makes a tiny pumpkin into a glorious pumpkin filled with love and joy just like God can for us.
This book is amazing for all ages I believe and gives a great lesson across to the children. Oct 17, Luisa Knight rated it really liked it Shelves: This is a wonderful autumn message! At Christmas time, I love hearing the story of the candy cane and what the Christian symbolism reminds us of. And this story, in an attempt to reclaim the pumpkin from Halloween, reminds us of what God can do with His children.
Make sure you look for this one - you and your children will enjoy it!
The Pumpkin Patch Parable by Liz Curtis Higgs
I also have hundreds of detailed reports that I offer too. These reports give a complete break-down of everything This is a wonderful autumn message! These reports give a complete break-down of everything in the book, so you'll know just how clean it is or isn't. Oct 30, Skyler rated it it was ok. I hope my other review didn't go threw, my laptop is touchy so I'm gonna try to rewrite it. This was a cute story, however the note the author wrote so you know what sorta story this is and its not a mindless goulish halloween story hit me sour.
I know where she was coming from and what she was trying to accomplish but it did not pan over well with me. There are plenty of cute little wholesome halloween stories about fun lil monsters and ghosts that do have a good meaning behind them. Her approa I hope my other review didn't go threw, my laptop is touchy so I'm gonna try to rewrite it. Her approach will not have me coming back to this author.
I'm glad we read this book at the library and did not purchase it. My two young boys and I were disappointed with this book. It started out promising that it was not a Halloween book and I thought the farmer might've made a scarecrow or a pie or a soup with his pumpkin but instead he made a jack-o'-lantern. To me that is still a Halloween feature. The scripture associated with each page does not make up for the fact that it's still a Halloween book.
May 09, Amy rated it really liked it Shelves: Picture book, religious A wonderful, non-scary tale about Halloween that children can enjoy hearing and looking at. It is religious so it may not be appropriate for all settings, but has a wonderful message. I love this book as well as The Pine Tree Parable by the same author. I think this is a good book for young children and can be enjoyed whether you are religious or not.

Christ has changed her and what a writer she is. Oct 25, Christina rated it it was amazing. I found this to be a beautiful story. The verses she picked to go with each step in the farmer's pumpkin adventure was perfect. What a wonderful autumn story for our children and a great way yo explain God's love to them. Oct 11, ShaRhonda rated it it was amazing Shelves: If there were more than five stars to rate with, I would give them all to this book! This has been a favorite in my home since my son, who is now 11 was 5. Now my daughter gets to have the alternative message of Halloween through a storybook unlike any others we own.
Apr 09, Anne rated it really liked it Shelves: This is a nice alternative to the typical Halloween fare, especially helpful if you avoid celebrating that particular holiday. It illustrates spiritual truth through the example of the "Jack-o-Lantern". Jan 25, Julia Williams rated it really liked it Shelves: This is a book about a farmer that plants many different things.
The best vegetable he grows is a pumpkin.

Oct 30, Judy"Intergalactic Bookworm" rated it it was amazing Recommends it for: This is a great "refurbishing" of the meaning of the Jack-O-Lantern from a Christian perspective. The Farmer is really Jesus Christ.
