P Is for Pumpkin by Kathy-jo Wargin and Illus. YaWen Ariel Pang

P Is for Pumpkin: God's Harvest Alphabet

Harvest time comes alive as you and your child make your way through this alphabet presentation of common fall activities.

“For God made the Earth—He made everything! He makes all the wonders each season will bring. He changes the colors on leaves big and small, red, brown and yellow to tell us it’s Fall. He turns the fields into ribbons of Gold, sparkling with frost as the autumn grows cold.” Destined to become a family keepsake, this unique, jacketed hardcover celebrates the wonders of an entire 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, opportunities to celebrate with friends and family, and traditions like barn dances, corn mazes, pumpkin carving, and more.

Kathy-jo Wargin
When Kathy-jo Wargin was a young girl, each night after dinner, her mother let her choose between washing the dishes or writing a poem. Before long, she decided that if she grew up to be a writer, she wouldn't have to do any dishes. She has since learned that even though she has published more than twenty award-winning books for children, she still has to wash the dishes. Kathy-jo lives in Michigan with her husband and son, Jake.

YaWen Ariel Pang
YaWen Ariel Pang enjoys creating bright, cheerful, and whimsical illustrations with a little humor whenever possible. Her illustrations are like Ariel herself, always bringing a smile to people’s faces and hearts. Ariel graduated from the Academy of Art College in San Francisco and currently resides in Taiwan.
