24. I liked the book “From Seed to Pumpkin” by Wendy Pfeffer for many reasons. For example, the book’s writing is written in third person and it is well organized as it describes the process of pumpkins growing on a pumpkin patch. The illustrations are appropriate to the context of the book because the colors used accurately depict the fall season and pumpkins in terms of stages of growth. The point of view is in third person, which adds to the story, as it’s main purpose is to be instructional. The language is also clear and uses simple sentences and vocabulary to assist young readers in learning about the development of pumpkins. I would choose to have this book in my classroom and to read it to my students during the fall season, as it would provide many opportunities for lessons and activities for my students. The main message of this story is to inform young readers of the steps in which a pumpkin develops. ( )

Summary: This book shows how a pumpkin is made. The book starts with a seed and how it is planted. The pumpkin is planted by the farmer. Then, the book talks about how the sun works to help the pumpkin grow.

Personal reaction: This book is good, but kind of gets boring. This book goes into detail about how a pumpkin is planted and grows. This book is for all ages. The illustrations were good and kept me interested.

Classroom extension:
1.) Plant a pumpkin in the classroom.
2.) Coloring page of pumpkins and their parts.
3.) Draw and label the parts of the pumpkin such as stem, roots, where it gets food, etc. ( )

While this is available for schools only, it is a great nonfiction text for youngsters. I use it in kindergarten but it would be a great addition to a plant life cycle unit in first grade too. The illustrated pictures are beautiful and it uses a lot of arrows and other features to make the content accessible. I like using the "Find Out More About Pumpkins" section in the back for extension purposes.
