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.
