Autumn is officially here; time for apples and pumpkins! Always so much fun to pick out a pumpkin and then head home for warm cider and the all important decision of how to decorate or carve the pumpkin.
Some favorite books about pumpkins:
Pumpkin Circle: The Story of a Garden. Rhyming text and photographs follow a pumpkin patch as it grows and changes, from seeds to plants to pumpkins ready to harvest, to jack-o-lanterns and then to seeds again.
Five Little Pumpkins. A colorfully illustrated padded board book that celebrates learning how to count, Halloween style.
Apples and Pumpkins. In preparation for Halloween night, a family visits Mr. Comstock’s farm to pick apples and pumpkins.
Duck and Goose Find a Pumpkin. Duck and Goose go out in search of a pumpkin, checking inside a log, a leaf pile, an apple tree, and other places before locating the right place to find one.
