In The Lantern Hill Light Parade families celebrate fall. Fall is often a dark time of year. The days grow shorter, the nights longer, and the season can be filled with traditions that frighten children. Molly, her cousins Jacob and Sammy, and their friends bring something that glows to a special celebration at Aunt Jenny and Uncle Gerry’s farm. Holding up their lights, they have a parade to combat the darkness. Aunt Jenny gives each child a Bible, telling them that Jesus is the light of the world.
Holidays are an opportunity for celebration and a time to create family traditions and memories. Yet the emphasis often shifts from the reason for the holiday to making the children the center of the celebration. The Lantern Hill Farm series of picture books and board books is designed to provide parents and grandparents entertaining stories with easy-to-recreate family activities that allow the child to be part of the holiday but not the center of it.
