From dark to light by Isabella Murphy

This book review fits in nicely with my previous blog post. Although it’s not about a strong female character, we need to take time to celebrate it was written by a (very) young female! And that clearly is something to celebrate.

This is an adorable story about a pumpkin seed, who wishes he could be out in the light.

It is a very carefully told tale that is equally exciting and fun to read. My children all enjoyed the story.

What I found interesting was the story is told as the seed. If teachers are wanting to teach their children how to write in first person and also develop their classes understanding about growth then this book would be a go to.

I don’t want to write too much as I don’t want to give the storyline away however I will say I loved that no matter how Pumkers sisters treated him, he was so glad that they were going to the same family, which is very heart warming. Again, my children loved this and found it relatable.

The illustrations were beautiful some seeming rather surreal but it worked and looked fantastic. There was so much to talk about just by looking at the pictures.

Share this book with your little ones!
