📚The Gift written by Robert F. Morneau and Beautifully Illustrated by Majorie M. Mau - 1995 Hard Cover Book In Wonderful condition.
This simple story about two friends, a rabbit, and a pumpkin, is also a parable about life, love, death, and renewal. Angela the pumpkin becomes aware of the sun, wind, earth, and rain both around her and inside her. Moved by the beauty of the world, she willingly sacrifices herself to provide light, love, and life to others. Sammy the rabbit watches as his beloved friend becomes first a lantern to help those afraid of the dark, then pumpkin pie to provide nourishment, and finally seeds to give birth to new life. The Gift is a wonderful way to introduce stewardship to children, especially the ideas of moving from gratitude to stewardship and of being a steward of one's own talents. Angela first responds with praise a hundred times a day for the gifts she's received. Then, her immense gratitude moves her to make a response with her whole being, which in turn inspires others to gratitude. This is a timeless lesson about the sacrifice that readers of all ages will carry in their hearts forever.
