Children's Literature
This Level 1 "Ready-to-Read" book is part of the Robin Hill School series. Katie is eager to find the perfect pumpkin when her class visits a pumpkin patch. After looking all over the pumpkin patch, Katie finds the perfect pumpkin. On the bus ride home, her classmates show off their pumpkins and Katie realizes that her pumpkin is very small. She feels bad because her pumpkin isn't perfect. When Katie gets home, she tells her father, "I picked a bad pumpkin." Her father then makes the pumpkin into a pie, with Katie's help. Katie takes the pie to school and everyone agrees that her pumpkin is perfect. Gordon's colorful, cartoonish drawings provide a perfect backdrop to this entertaining and educational story. This is a good book for children ready to move on from traditional picture books. 2003, Simon and Schuster,

PreS-Gr 1-When Katie's first-grade class goes on a field trip to the pumpkin patch, she is convinced that she has found the perfect pumpkin until her classmates tease her about its tiny size. However, her father suggests that they make a pie, and the pumpkin is just the right size. Katie takes the dessert to school to share with the other children, who find it "perfect." The easy text in large type, with no more than two sentences per page, and the cheerful, colorful cartoon art will appeal to beginning readers.-Doris Losey, Tampa-Hillsborough County Public Library, Tampa, FL Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
