Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-Grade 2—Whimsical acrylic cartoons show busy children and animals in an alphabet-based text that emphasizes God's presence in the season: "The bright Jack-o'-lantern with its friendly, big grin/reminds us God's love is a light from within"; "…over the Scarecrow, all stuffed with hay./A reminder that God watches us each day." A barn dance, a quilting bee, and a hayride provide nostalgic scenes for children to consider, along with imaginative background details of animals reading, making beds, selling cookies, raking, and catching nuts in nets. Innocent faces, clear colorful shapes, and a smooth rhyming text that conveys the awe and joy of the season make this a sweet, gentle book for family and church settings.—Lee Bock, Glenbrook Elementary School, Pulaski, WI

Review

Pang's illustrations are done in an appealing primitive style in a warm palette of fall shades, with a thoughtful overall design that sets off the art in oval shapes against solid backgrounds of autumnal colors. -- Kirkus Review <br><br> (Kirkus Review)

Oh how I loved this delightful children's book from the start! The warm Autumn earth tone illustrations introduce us to the fall season with an abundant harvest of apples and Indian corn to pumpkins and quilting bees! I personally love pumpkin patches, the color of orange, quilting with friends and enjoying my garden. Yawn Ariel Pang cheerfully illustrates the joy and extra fun of country living on the faces of the children!

Kathy-jo is a very talented author who brilliantly weaves the heart of autumn in a beautiful rhyming text. Two messages are clearly stated by the author that every parent and grandparent loves to share with little ones and that is learning the alphabet and hearing of God's love for us each and every day, especially celebrating God's richest harvest blessings together! I love this book! ***** stars! Worth reading!

Very nice. Fun alphabet book with upbeat theme. Kids want to read it over and over. Illustrations are good, despite what another reviewer said. It's a kid's book, for crying out loud! Will look for more from this author.

I bought this book at the store after having picked it up to look at it. I love it! I have such a hard time finding cute, good books about God to share with my 2 year old that hold her attention and are relevant to her world AND are sound theologically. So many are just regular books with "Jesus" thrown in for good measure, but this one does a good job of showing God's handiwork through creation and giving examples of how we can be reminded of His presence through ordinary objects and events. Unlike the other reviewers, neither I nor my daughter found the pictures scary - they are pretty standard children's book illustrations. I give this book 4 stars.

I was so excited to receive this book. It was something I waited a while to get. The content of the book is great - simple, easy-to-understand format makes reading aloud fun and enjoyable. However, the pictures a quite disappointing. I was hoping for more clean, vibrant details but instead saw "dark" looking pictures and unattractive faces. There is a person with a face on almost every page and they are not very nice to look at. I would consider some of them scary even. The other art work is well done just not what I was expecting or hoping for. I wish a different illustrator had been used to complete this work. I'm not a fan of Yawen Ariel Pang.
