I loved Precious Moments as a child. I loved the books and the figurines. On my wedding day, my husband left a Precious Moments bride and groom figurine on the table for me in the bridal room. I have treasured it for more than 25 years now. I have two daughters who enjoyed Precious Moments almost as much as I did. Precious Moments stories and figurines are timeless. Happy Harvest by Jean Fischer is bound to be a favorite for years to come.
Happy Harvest by is a sweet Precious Moments rhyming book for children. The version I received is a board book appropriate for toddlers. Happy Harvest describes all the things we love about Fall. Children learn about making friends as school starts back after summer break. They learn about the purpose of the scarecrow and picking apples at harvest time.
Children read about football, colorful leaves, campfires, and marshmallows.
Children read about pumpkins, hayrides, and turkeys at Thanksgiving.
Children also learn about giving thanks in prayer. As children and their parents read through Happy Harvest, they will see a Bible verse at the bottom of each set of open pages. Parents might use this opportunity to teach children about the value of scripture and how the Bible relates to our every day lives. Scripture memorization is healthy for children and adults. The Bible verses on these pages are great verses for children to memorize.
I read Happy Harvest to my in-home preschool children. They enjoyed the illustrations and the rhyming nature of the book. I loved the book because it teaches children about God, prayer, Bible verses, and the value of faith.
