Title: Snuggle Time Fall Blessings
Author: Glenys Nellist

“On a windy, crisp fall day,
Leaves race down the street.
Orange, red, and yellow,
Falling at my feet.
We stomp and crunch and kick them
And swish them as we run.
Thank you, God, for autumn.
It’s really so much fun!”
Glenys Nellist writes her children’s book, Snuggle Time Fall Blessings.
~ What ~
At twenty-four pages, this board book with a padded front cover targets children ages two to six years old. With no scary scenes, it is a nice story about Fall and how, through the eyes of animals, the season is enjoyed and God is thanked.
With some complicated wording, this short book told in rhyme contains a dozen two-stanza, four-lines-each poems. With adorable, colorful illustrations, there are foxes, mice, bunnies, hedgehogs, squirrels, and raccoons that thank God, say goodbye to summer, enjoy a bonfire, play in leaves, meet a scarecrow, pick apples, go on a wagon ride, visit a pumpkin patch, carve a pumpkin, and have family time.
Having four grandchildren, I love giving them adorable books that will keep their attention as they view the cute critters and are read the rhymes, and this one works well. I like that the poems are short and not too confusing, suggesting ways to enjoy the season.
~ Why Not ~
With so many two and three-syllable words, this would be a hard beginner reader’s book; it makes a nice bedtime or calming book where an adult could read it to a toddler who enjoys looking at pictures.
~ Wish ~
With the book targeting toddlers and preschoolers, it would be better if some of the words were more simplistic for a beginner reader, but that may be challenging to keep it in a rhyming format. I wish it mentioned God more often.
~ Want ~
If you are looking for a book about Fall and things to do during the season while your child enjoys viewing cute, colorful pictures of animals, this is a great choice.
Thanks to Z-Blog Squad for furnishing this complimentary book that I am under no obligation to review.
