Rounded, cartoonish illustrations reminiscent of Tomie de Paola take up the top 3/4 of each page, with text along the bottom (and some labels on the pictures). Readers learn about the life cycle of a pumpkin, from seed to harvest time. There are instructions on how to carve a pumpkin, how to prepare pumpkin seeds to save or eat, and a brief history of Halloween. Perfect for pre-K and K-2. ( )

This book talks about exactly how pumpkins grow starting from the seed. It talks about how no pumpkin is the same ever!. This can teach children about self-worth because every person is also different and unique.

Want to know more about Pumpkins? Well this is the right book. This book would be good to use when learning about pumpkins, or around Halloween. In this book it tells us what family pumpkins belong to, when to plant pumpkin seeds, what the seed needs to grow, what the plant will look like at each stage, and when to harvest the pumpkins. It even tells you step by step on how to carve a pumpkin. This was a fun informational book. ( )
