Maria3 Stars Out Of 5Good stories but be wary of some of the verses used. :)January 17, 2016MariaQuality: 0Value: 0Meets Expectations: 0Parable Treasury by Liz Curtis Higgs is all four parable stories in one book. First off, I loved how sturdy the book is and how vibrant the illustrations are. My son really enjoyed the Easter and Christmas stories. I did, too!
But on another note, I didn't read the Bible verses with the story since many of the verses didn't really apply. I think we ruin things by trying too hard to put Bible verses to everything little thing because then we run the risk of using verses out of context which did happen in these boks The better way would have been to have one verse for each story. Then the child could easily remember and associate that verse to the story. When I read these stories to my son, I ignored the verses and concentrated on reading the book. Then we talked about what we read in relation to the Bible story. If you get these books, keep that in mind.
I didn't care for the The Sunflower Parable. It was my least favorite story because I didn't like how proud the boy was. He was never corrected. Rather it seemed he was encouraged to be proud he had the biggest, tallest plant in the garden. The Pumpkin Patch Parable was a good story. You could easily see what the author was trying to teach with that book, and she even explains it at the end. The Parable of the Lily is one of my favorites because it's an Easter story! It's so hard to find those. Anyway, it's a stepping stone to talk more about Jesus' death and resurrection. The Pine Tree Parable was my favorite! It's a great Christmas story for little kids. It's all about giving to others even when it's something you like and want to keep. What an appropriate story for us all especially at Christmas. :-)
I was given this book for free from BookLook Bloggers in exchange for an honest review.
tickmenotKansas CityGender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Winter, Spring, Summer and Fall--This Book Contains Them AllDecember 5, 2015tickmenotKansas CityGender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5What do pumpkins, sunflowers, lilies and pine trees have in common? They all come together in this volume for some remarkable children's stories.
This is a collection of four former stand-alone books, which the author refers to as parables. Ms. Higgs' overwhelming joy of becoming a Christian, along with the newness she found in Christ, was the inspiration for, The Pumpkin Patch Parable.
The Parable of the Lily, The Sunflower Parable, and The Pine Tree Parable are the other titles that followed, and make up this treasury. Each one takes place in a different season: winter, spring, summer and fall. All of these tales were first read to the author's children, and just like Biblical parables, there is a moral, or virtue in each one.
Beautiful colors and illustrations are on every page of this large, hard backed book that also has a padded cover. Scripture dots the bottom of many of the pages, and each verse was chosen with care after much prayer. These stories explore things such as hurting other's feelings and helping those in need, done in way a child can understand.
This lovely book was a real treat to read, and look at. I liked that each story represented a different season. These stories will really catch a child's interest, and the bright colors will appeal to them, too. When I was looking at this book, a family member said, "this is a happy book, you just feel happy when you look at these pages." That is very true--the colors, pictures, and stories--all bring a smile to your face, and will warm your heart. There is nothing wrong with a story that is told for pleasure only, but the fact that each of these parables have point to make, is an added bonus. Get this 5-star book, you will not be disappointed. I recommend it.

Pam BurkePotosi, MOAge: 55-65Gender: Female4 Stars Out Of 5Sweet stories for little onesNovember 28, 2015Pam BurkePotosi, MOAge: 55-65Gender: FemaleQuality: 0Value: 0Meets Expectations: 0Parable Treasury is a collection of four stories for young children by the gifted Liz Curtis Higgs.
Each parable is set in a different season of the year and teaches a Biblical principle in words that little ones can relate to. Even for those too young to fully understand the parable, the bright pictures and simple stories should spark their interest. Most pages also include a Bible verse (quoted or paraphrased) to help with the application lessons of the parable.
These stories should provide a meaningful way to share bedtime or other quality story time with your children or grandchildren.
The colorful padded front cover is an added benefit to the quality of the book.
Thanks to BookLook Bloggers for providing a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.
