Here's a wonderful little book for children of all ages, really. With colorful pages and little friends that carry a child through the story of a seedling to the yummy treats of roasted pumpkin seeds, a child will love and appreciate this book. And, parents will like the bubbled notes accompaning that give how tos from everything on planting to pie-making, as well.

The simple illustrations on planting and caring for pumpkins couldn't be easier for children to follow, which is a feature making thi

I received an advance reader's copy of this book from netgalley.
My children saw me about to read it, and so I decided to read it to them. What better way to judge a children's book, than read it to children?
My kids are 3 and 5 years old. They really enjoyed learning about how to grow pumpkins, especially since it is Fall right now, and close to Halloween.
They liked that it had a recipe for roasted pumpkin seeds, and are already bugging me to make some.

Fall is here with it’s brightly colored leaves, golden and red and brown but one of the best things about Fall are the pumpkins. From the very small to the largest weighing nearly as large as a cow. Pumpkins bring the season to life and make the first holiday of the season one to remember.

Say what you will, but next to the colors during this spectacular time of year, pumpkins are one of its most defining features. From Halloween to Thanksgiving and then Christmas pumpkins make an appearance in e

NOTE: This review first appeared at my personal blog.

“Fall Pumpkins” is a new book, released in September by Lerner Publishing Group, via their Millbrook Press imprint and is part of their “Cloverleaf Books: Fall’s Here!” collection. I got an eARC from NetGalley. I did not receive any compensation for this review.

The marketing copy for the book describes it thus: “It’s time for a trip to the pumpkin patch! Find out how pumpkins grow. See the many things we do with pumpkins. Let’s carve a jack-o’

This picture book all about pumpkins is charming and informative. Martha Rustad takes readers through the entire growth cycle of pumpkins, from planting the seeds to harvest time. The book shows children some of the different uses for pumpkins as well as providing fun facts along the way about the biggest pumpkins or which pumpkins have less seeds inside. Viewing it as E-Book, it had no interactive features but the colors were quite vivid on the screen. The illustrations are very alluring and cr ...more

There are a number of things that make this series very good for both educational purposes and pleasure reading. First, the design is attractive and easy to follow. The organization works especially well for a teacher who wishes to cover certain aspects of fall in an orderly manner. I also appreciated the use of a table of contents, glossary, index, and additional resources. Each book also contains an activity that goes along with the information covered in each book. The second thing I like is ...more

Received a review copy. I have been looking for some good fall time children's books to read to my son. So I was happy to be able to review this book. The book tells the life cycle of pumpkins from being planted all the way to being harvested and eaten.

The illustrations are wonderfully done. With beautiful colors that represent all the different seasons. It was not too overly wordy so my 4 year old did not lose interest but at the same time it gave some great information to him on how pumpkins

This beautifully illustrated educational book teaches your children all about pumpkins. From how to grown a pumpkin, to how to carve them, this book covers it all. Parents, you might also be surprised to learn a thing or two as you delve into all the pumpkin related facts. (I had no idea there were blue pumpkins!) The illustrations are adorable, and my four year old was just as absorbed as my 9 and 10 year old were. This would make a great addition to a homeschooling reading list, especially in ...more
