Fun book to check out from the library and read before or after you head to the pumpkin patch. You learn about how a pumpkin comes to be up to carving it for your own jack 'o lantern. Potentially scary photo of witch at pumpkin patch inside the book. For similar story, but better read try "Pumpkins" by Ken Robbins.
This book is very simple and describes the life cycle of a pumpkin. It would be great to use in a science lesson or for Fall. The illustrations are photographics which makes the book so realistic and attractive to children.
