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.

This is a book about how pumpkin seeds grow from a tiny seed. I explains the entire process from planting to watering until you have vines with flowers on them that turn into hard balls and eventually into pumpkins.

I like this book because the wording is very easy for a preschooler to understand. Just looking at the pictures a child can understand what is going on in the book.

In the classroom you could do a nutrition activity tasting pumkin seeds and talking about how they grow into pumpkins. You could also plant a seed and let the children water and watch it grow. ( )
