Fall is here with it’s brightly colored leaves, golden and red and brown but one of the best things about Fall are the pumpkins. From the very small to the largest weighing nearly as large as a cow. Pumpkins bring the season to life and make the first holiday of the season one to remember.

Say what you will, but next to the colors during this spectacular time of year, pumpkins are one of its most defining features. From Halloween to Thanksgiving and then Christmas pumpkins make an appearance in ever way imaginable. So what better than a children’s book all about these plentiful veggies?

What was a treat for our family was that it wasn’t only appealing to one kiddo, but both because of it’s varied platform. Portions of the book were fictional with characters and a story that my two year old daughter could get excited over, especially with the brightly colored illustrations. The aspect that appealed most to my son were the non-fiction elements about planting pumpkins, watching them grow and then the how-to’s of using the fully ripe pumpkin. As he gets older I see his interests veer toward more non-fiction, but he still enjoys a great picture book and it was nice to have this blend with Fall Pumpkins.

Overall Fall Pumpkins by Martha E. H. Rustad was an enjoyable read that appeals to both fiction and non-fiction loving kiddos. Filled with adorable illustrations with the bright colors of Fall and diverse characters this will no doubt be a draw to young readers everywhere. Share the wonders of a staple of the Fall season, the pumpkin, with young readers and help them understand not only how pumpkins grow but what to do with them beyond carving faces into their shells. An adorable teaching picture book perfect for the Fall season at home or in school.
