Parable Treasury ~ Children’s Book Review

Nov 2015 Parable Treasury Cover

A few years ago while browsing a bookstore with a friend, we came across a children’s book with beautiful sunflowers on the cover.  My friend picked it up and handed it to me, saying “this is a wonderful book, you should have it for your daughter!”  I did buy it and we have enjoyed reading it several times since then.  The story even inspired us to plant sunflower seeds (and a few even grew into flowers)!

The book was titled The Sunflower Parable, by Liz Curtis Higgs.   I wish I had thought to look for her other titles before now; but fortunately for us, one of the Tommy Nelson resources for this month is Parable Treasury!

Parable Treasury includes four stories, one for each season of the year. The Pumpkin Patch Parable is a story for Autumn, and The Sunflower Parable will put you in the mood for summer (be ready with some sunflower seed to plant). The Pine Tree Parable is a Christmas story of sacrificial giving, and The Parable of the Lily, and Easter parable, tells of forgiveness, resurrection, and beauty.

Beautifully illustrated by Nancy Munger, many pages also include a relevant scripture verse that you can share with your children.  Parables are a wonderful way to gently teach God’s truth and values to little ones.  They are a great starting point for discussion, and are often more effective than lectures! (Jesus often used parables while teaching – and He is the greatest instructor!)
