The Book

What a sweet book! A day to enjoy in the wonderful Autumn season is documented.  "Night Night, Pumpkin" is the creation of bestselling and award-winning author-illustrator team Amy Parker and Virginia Allyn and is the second seasonal addition to the popular Night Night line of storybooks. 

This board book is a perfect bedtime read-aloud that little ones can relate too.  An adorable little puppy in a pumpkin costume goes about his day saying good night to the leaves, pumpkins, his family, the corn, apples, cows and God. At the end of his busy day his mom tucks him in, along with a host of others animals, and says... "Good night Pumpkin" to him. 

The rhyming words and colourful, detailed illustrations are a perfect marriage.  Together they bring the story to life.  The autumn season dominates the storyline unveiling its wonders and the book expresses thankfulness for all of God's fall blessings.  The strong bonds of family love flow from page to page. 

This book prepares children for the beauty and fun that the fall season can offer and would be great for preschoolers and kindergarteners to listen to at any time of the year.  I highly recommend this book.
