Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Carrie Hane Hung
Beautiful color photographs of many types of pumpkins are found on every layout. In this book, explore the different facets of the pumpkin. The story begins with the growth of the seed into a pumpkin plant. The pictures capture the various stages of the pumpkin's development from seed to pumpkin and the different stages in-between. There are snapshots that show some of the different varieties of pumpkin along with what the pumpkin looks like on the inside. Although pumpkins are used to make different goodies to eat, pumpkins are also associated with carving jack-o'-lanterns. The different glowing faces of the jack-o'-lantern are included. The story comes to an end with the final stages of the pumpkin. Extra pumpkins are fed to farm animals and some pumpkins are left to replenish the earth as they decay. Some children who are able to read the text may need some guidance in navigating the text within the page and layout. This book is part of National Geographic's "Picture the Seasons" series. It makes a nice addition to an autumn unit of study. Reviewer: Carrie Hane Hung

    This book is WONDERFUL! I used it in my classroom to teach a pumpkin unit and it went along perfectly. My students loved the great detail in the picture and I enjoyed the great non-fiction text that went along with it. This is a great book overall and highly recommended.
