Ah, Fall! The leaves are changing color, there is a cool chill to the air, and there is pumpkin spice everything wherever you turn. This is also a great time to get in an outdoor unit study before jack frost shuts many of us in for the cold winter months.
When my kids were younger, I loved creating unit studies for the Fall. We would incorporate pumpkin seeds and learning about leaves and them changing colors. We would also do scavenger hunts and make artistic creations with leaves, rocks and sticks.
An important part of those studies for me was always bringing it back to God. After all He is the one who created it all. And that is the reason that I wanted to put together a list of Christian Kids books for the Fall.
Playful rhymes leap off illustrated pages by Katherine Blackmore and give thanks to God for the wonderment created in fall. The infectious rhyming prose paired with scriptural passages, give gratitude and glory to God as early learners discover the Fantastic Gifts of Fall.
P is for Pumpkin celebrates the wonders of the fall season. With help from the alphabet, preschoolers journey through God’s harvest blessings―in the process discovering just how much there is to be thankful for! The fun is infectious as they learn to appreciate autumn for its beauty and bounty and more.
The Pumpkin Patch Parable-This charming story for children illustrates how a loving farmer can turn a simple pumpkin into a simply glorious sight. In the same way, God’s transforming love can fill each of our hearts with joy and light. Liz Curtis Higgs created this parable as a way to share the Good News with her own precious children each harvest season . . . and now with children everywhere.
Autumn is a beautiful time of year, and the folks of Bear Country are looking forward to everything the season brings. So when the Chapel in the Woods holds its first ever Harvest Festival, people gather at Farmer Ben’s for a wonderful time of family, friends, fun, and praising God for his gifts.
