Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Beginning readers will learn about all the shapes and sizes of pumpkins in these rhymed couplets. "Pumpkins striped in shades of yellow. One looks like a large marshmallow!" Some go to the county fair and end up as pies, muffins and bread. Many become jack-o-lanterns on Halloween night. The text is a litany of the shapes, sizes, colors and uses of pumpkins and has a sing-song rhythm. A storyline is presented in the illustrations. They show happy, ethnically-diverse children visiting an Amish farm and selecting their pumpkins. Word repetition and short sentences are key parts of this "Step into reading. Step 2" series book. Despite the many exclamation points, this is really quite bland. 2005, Random House, Ages 5 to 8.

Random House authors always produce some of the best beginning readers. This one is one of the best of the best. It not only provides our young readers with a beautifully written, lyrical narrative about the shapes, sizes and colors of pumpkins, but it also presents a little allegory of life -- of how we are ALL little pumpkins in the pumpkin patch of life, each different in shape, size and color, yet each 'growing' along side each other to become the best we can be. It is an imaginative, poetic look at the many things that pumpkins ARE and can BECOME. Children, parents, teachers and librarians are all in for a tasty treat when they sample OH MY, PUMPKIN PIE!
