Recommends it for: Pre-schoolers obsessed w/pink.
Recommended to Modboy by: Park Slope Library
This book seems to just reinforce gender stereotypes. Why does everything need to be pink in order for Pinkalicious to be the least bit interested? Need we ask -- it's just her thing. Pinkalicious: Tickled Pink was a much better read. Maybe it's because the lift-the-flap format is meant for younger children while Tickled Pink had a more mature scenario. The writing is sugary sweet and despite all the pinkness the character is a strong girl.

Pinkalicious and the Pink Pumpkin by Victoria Kann is a Lift-the-Flap addition to the Pinkalicious series of books. Pinkalicious and her family are searching for the perfect pumpkins as Halloween is around the corner.

Pinkalicious, having heard of the Pink Pumpkin Patch decides that's the place to go. She goes expecting a field of pink pumpkins and is disappointed to find orange pumpkins grown by a man with the surname Pink. Undaunted, she searches high and low for a truly pink pumpkin.

I must admit that I'm not the biggest fan of Pinkalicious, but our first grader loves her. So, I dutifully read these books. This is a Fall-themed story that is perfect to read around Halloween, especially before or after a trip to a pumpkin patch. Both of our girls liked the lift-the-flap feature of the book, and I'm glad that my third grader seemed to like the story (at least a little.)

I can't help but feel that pinkalicious is a bit bratty, but overall, this is a fun story. Our youngest help

First graders seemed to giggle more with this book than the other book I paired with it, which was Otto the boy who loved cars. Pinkalicious and her family are at the local pumpkin patch and Pinkalicious is searching for Mr. Pink's pink pumpkin. The book's flaps were a hit with the students as I read the book.

I would not really consider reading this book to my class. It is completly based off the color pink and promotes gender biases. I would read this book at home to my children because she does explore and look for something she wants, and does not give up.

We love Pinkalicious. In this story she is going to Mr. Pink's Pumpkin patch. So of course she wants a pink pumpkin. She searches through the whole farm looking for the pink pumpkin. I can just see my daughter wanting a pink pumpkin.

While not the best book for library circulation (lift the flaps) or group readalouds (tiny text and format), this title showing Pink's trip to the pumpkin patch will be swooned over by little girls who are fans of Pinkalicious.

Pinkalicious took a little warming up to for me. However, now that I have read several, I do find them entertaining. Plus, my daughter loves Pinkalicious and her independent and unique spirit!
