This whimsical story will have your little one curious to watch Marla as she chases her roll away pumpkin that rolls all around town. The repeated rhyme gives readers a sense of story pattern. I love stories that repeat a line and encourage the story listener to join in with the familiar words from page to page.
The Chapel in the Woods is the perfect spot for the Bear Country Harvest Festival. The images of autumn in this lovely story of blessings and gratefulness teach valuable lessons as do all the Berenstain Bears books. I love the correlation to our own autumn traditions that we find in Harvest Festival. Check out other books that explore the life journey of the bear family.
This sweet story takes me back to many fall days of activities with apples and pumpkins with may own children and my kindergarten classes of days gone by. I can see the smiles and hear the giggles of picking apples and selecting the just right pumpkin that became the front step greeter on our own porch.

The simple font makes the text easy for beginning readers.
