Hey everyone! Fall is here and I figured I would do a book review on what is probably the cutest fall themed book you and your kids will ever read. From Dark to Light is a children’s book written by Isabella Murphy and illustrated by Natalia Perez. The book was published by Pink Umbrella Books just this year!
From Dark to Light is about a little pumpkin seed named Pumpker and his desire to turn into a pumpkin and go live with a family. Along with Pumpker are his two sisters, Plumpilina and Plumpilicious. All three pumpkin seeds lived on a farm with the farmer and his wife. In the beginning his sisters made him feel alone and left out. Pumpker just wanted to fit in! I do not want to spoil the ending for you and your little ones, but in the end all the pumpkins were happy!
I read through this book alone before I read it to “D”. As I was reading through the book I could not help but ooh and awe at the adorable illustrations! The story was so cute too. I loved the story as a whole and felt it was perfect for the season. It brought me so much joy to read this book. From Dark to Light is happy and light hearted, and I recommend it to everybody!
As I read the book to “D” I was a little worried about the length of the book, and if she would be able to sit through the story. There were even times when I was sure she was not listening. However, much to my surprise she was! Every couple pages she would ask a question about what we read. Some of her questions were; “Where is the farmer’s wife?” and “What are the pumpkins names again?” She really surprised me with those questions! “D” really loved the farmer’s wife. In fact, I am almost positive that she was “D”’s favorite character in the book. As I finished reading, “D” asked for me to read it again! From Dark to Light was a huge hit with her, and we will definitely be reading it again!
From Dark to Light is one of quite a few books published by Pink Umbrella Books. All of the books that are sold by Pink Umbrella Books are so cute, and all have been huge hits with “D”. If you would like to buy a copy of From Dark to Light I will leave a link below.
