Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
In Five Little Pumpkins, illus. by Dan Yaccarino, five carved pumpkins watch ghosts and witches fly by on Halloween night. Bold colors, expressive pumpkins and dramatic perspectives complement the spirited rhyming text. R.W. Alley's lively, humorous illustrations for There Once Was a Witch depict a cheerful Halloween night with costumed trick-or-treaters and a fun-loving, broomstick-surfing witch. The music and lyrics for this traditional song appear on the last spread. Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
These smiling and not too fearsome pumpkins are sitting on a fence gate. The ghost doesn't frighten them and neither does the witch nor black cat. In the end, they just roll out of sight. It's a popular chanting rhyme that toddlers will enjoy. Yaccarino's bold pictures show a variety of expressions on these five brave little pumpkins.
School Library Journal
PreS--Five Little Pumpkins repeats the well-known fingerplay. In Yaccarino's illustrations, garish orange jack-o'-lanterns with stark black eyes are accompanied by a blankly staring white ghost and a black cat. Although this short poem has been a perennial favorite of the storytime set, some children may find these faces frightening rather than appealing. In Wrapping Paper Romp, Plecas depicts a cheerful, round-faced toddler in orange pajamas tearing apart a colorfully wrapped present as a cat paws at a bow. Hubbell's rhyming couplets will hold youngsters' interest as they recognize the peek-a-boo game that the main character plays with the kitten behind the purple tissue paper. Skip the pumpkins and romp with the tamer of the two.--Blair Christolon, Prince William Public Library System, Manassas, VA

    The October before last, I had to spend a few days in North Caro

    The October before last, I had to spend a few days in North Carolina without my then-almost-three year old son. I wanted to bring him back something special, and, when I was out running errands, I saw this book. I love Dan Yaccarino's joyfully brilliant illustrations, and my son loved (and still loves) pumpkins, so I figured this book would be a winner. I was right. 
    We, of course, read it every night up until Hallowe'en. Then Thanksgiving. Then Christmas. It did get a bit of a rest during the spring and summer, but it is out again, and this time, HE reads it.
    Five Little Pumpkins is a very old poem that we used every year at the library's Hallowe'en parties. With Dan Yaccarino's quirky-charming illustrations, the poem become alive and fresh, making this book a Hallowe'en classic for many years. I am quite partial to the ghosts. And cats. 
    If you are lucky enough to find this book this year -- it was published in 1998 -- pick it up and pass it on to your favorite kid.

    Perfect Beginning Read

    My eighteen-month-old grandson has had this book since he was eight-months-old and loves it! The simple and bright illustrations are appealing and he loves 'reading' along with the rhyming text. You will be hard pressed to find a better first Halloween book for your baby.
