Porcupine’s Pie {A Sweet Autumn Themed Children’s Book}

 

Porcupine’s Pie by Laura Renauld and illustrated by Jennie Poh is a delightful storybook to be enjoyed during the Autumn season.

Her friends all were missing a bit of something in their own dishes and what does Porcupine do but offer them to take as much as they need from her pantry!

A Very Thankful Prayer By Bonnie Rickner Jensen {Book Review}

A Very Thankful Prayer By Bonnie Rickner Jensen and illustrated by Natalia Moore captures the Autumn season perfectly. The cover of the book draws you in with shiny foil leaves falling from the tree and being swept off the ground by the wind. The book is geared toward toddler, preschoolers, and anyone else that is captivated by this particular season.

The board book format makes it so it will last for a long time. It consists of 24 pages that I no doubt feel will be turned again and again.  The colorful illustrations are such a joy to look at.  The characters are friendly animals that are enjoying everything that’s to love about Fall. There are friends playing with each other at the park, families picking pumpkins together, gathering apples for pie or to make candy on a stick, celebrating Thanksgiving together, roasting marshmallows by the fire, helping others, and so much more!  Continue reading
