This is a sweet board book that relates the carving of the pumpkin to our new life with Jesus.  I love how the kids can carve the pumpkin while reading the story.  This gives them not just the visual but sensory experience to help them understand how God cleans our hearts and shines brightly within us!

This rhyming book is one of my favorites for younger kids to teach them God’s heart for Thanksgiving. Each page suggests different ideas of what thanksgiving is about, but by the end the conclusion is made that Thanksgiving is all about giving thanks to God who made all of it.

This is a great read for children in the fall to help them understand their newness in Christ through an allegory of a pumpkin! The story is about a farmer who plants pumpkins and transforms an ordinary pumpkin into a glorious sight as a jack-o-lantern, just as the Lord cleans and transforms us, and gives us His light to shine brightly for Him.

This is an adorable story about a pumpkin that decides to runaway during Halloween time and how the farmer forgives Pete and brings him back home.  The sweet story of redemption is a great reminder that our loving Savior will always welcome us back when we mess up.

This book also describes the Pilgrim’s trip to the new world and all the hardships they went through to get to the first Thanksgiving. I read this one with my kids to teach them about the first Thanksgiving, and they really enjoyed it.

I hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving and enjoy spending a little extra time snuggling with your children and reading books about this special holiday.
