Overview

From talented author/illustrator Jerry Smath comes a rhyming story about a little girl who likes pumpkins!

Some pumpkins are tall; some pumpkins are squat.
Some pumpkins are big; some pumpkins are not.

It's that time of year again! The Halloween season is all about yummy candy, ghosts and goblins, and of course, pumpkins. In Jerry Smath's latest Halloween 8x8 title, a little girl tells her favorite things about pumpkins--like pumpkin masks, pumpkin seeds, and scary jack-o'-lanterns. But her favorite of all is . . . delicious pumpkin pie!

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
A little girl celebrates pumpkins in all their shapes and forms and uses. She talks about how there are plastic ones, some to hold candy, and some made into lanterns. The seeds can be eaten or planted. Her favorite pumpkins are made into pies. This story in verse has an upbeat tone that echoes a child's excitement about selecting a pumpkin and celebrating Halloween and autumn. The illustrations show the little girl in a car with her mother on their way to the pumpkin patch. They select their pumpkin, and on their return home, pass some unusual sights. Touches of humor are found here, such as Frankenstein and his pet alligator each taking a pumpkin home. Children will enjoy the fantasy of her bedroom where everything has a pumpkin theme, from her headboard to the clock. Four puzzles in which the reader has to find the different pumpkin, count which farmer has the most, find the hidden pumpkins in the parade, and find the pumpkin that looks like the little girl complete the book. Parents and teachers can begin a conversation with children about their favorite pumpkin or talk about Halloween sights and symbols. A nice little book and a bargain at this price. 2003, Cartwheel Books/Scholastic,
