Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Sylvia Firth
Going to a pumpkin patch in the fall is a common trip for many youngsters. As a prelude to this outing, adults may share this book with them. The large, childlike illustrations are easily viewed in a group or family setting. Chapter one describes the process of planting pumpkin seeds in the spring. The second chapter covers the growth process from flowering and pollinating to the appearance of tiny green pumpkins to full growth in the fall. How to use pumpkins is presented in the final chapter which includes carving one into a jack-o'-lantern. Leaf shaped sections on many of the pages contain unusual facts such as pumpkins may be red, green, white, blue as well as orange. A recipe for roasting pumpkin seeds is an added bonus. Other additions are an index, glossary, bibliography and websites. This series titled "Fall's Here!" includes five other books. If material is needed for units about the seasons, consider adding this book to the collection. Reviewer: Sylvia Firth
