I absolutely fell in love with Karen Katz' illustrations when my kids were babies and preschoolers. So much so, that there is hardly a book of hers that we didn't own. I'm so glad that this one's still being sold.

If you have a baby or a preschooler in the house, this is a perfect book to read with them. I used to tell my kids when to lift the flap (or just plain tear it off...lots of these books are gently tape

This sturdy lift-the-flaps board book is perfect for toddlers to "read" with another person. Baby is looking for his pumpkin. Under the flaps are cats, ghosts, sparkly bats, candied apples, and a witch's hat, and an assortment of all those things. It is a fun interactive book for Halloween.

This is a very sweet book and I read this book to my niece when she was 6 months old. She came to my house and she liked seeing the colorful pictures and liked when I lifted the flaps and when I got to the last page she enjoyed the book and my nice loved how baby kept searching for her pumpkin. I gave this book to my niece when she had was going to her first fall festival. This is a very cute book and I recommend it to young children that are 2, 3 or 4 years old. The child will learn to help sea ...more
Good book to teach my daughter not to tear books, especially pop up books. It's interactive and that's nice.
Cute hands on Halloween book for a toddler.
Emelia really likes this book
candied apples! yum!
Needed a toddler-age Halloween theme--and fast! Found this in the board books. Should work!

Recommends it for: toddlers, preschoolers
I found this one just a bit more fun than the Valentine book. It has the same problem of not having very exciting places that the baby looked, but what the baby found was more interesting, especially the bats with the reflective foil paper. Was considering buying this, but this book's flaps were very similar to our other Katz book, so I went with something different. This book was part of an impressive Halloween book spread at Kmart.
My 28 month old daughter usually love lift the flap books.
She didn't smile or laugh and point things out.
I been trying to get her excited for Halloween by getting dvds and book from the library.
i Will not being buying this book or reccomending it to anyother parents I know.
I believe it's working because yesterday out shopping with my mom she kept running towards
the Halloween section with big blown up decorations.
This is a cute book for Halloween for young children. This board book has textured pages (better done than any other book I have read). Baby is looking for her pumpkin. She keeps looking for it. The reader gets to lift a flap on every page. We see neat things beneath the flaps. Baby eventually finds her pumpkin.
This is a good Halloween addition to Karen Katz's "Where Is Baby's...?" series of books. Book stores faithfully bring out this book to a prominent position among their array of other seasonal material, and I think that as a book it compares favorably with the rest of the author's releases.
This book has been among the first that my baby has actually interacted with. Many books are just plain pictures and words, but with the many flaps and hidden objects she really enjoys this one. Wish it had some textures built in, but overall a great book!
My daughter loves this book, especially the fuzzy black cat, which she loves to touch. However, there is some serious copyright infringment going on in this book: there's a "friendly ghost." Hmm, anyway, this is still a great Halloween flip book.

Many months later, this is still one of his favorite books. Loves pulling up the flaps and seeing what's underneath. Sometimes he shows he wants to read it by saying "pumpkin" "pumpkin" and will go get the book and bring it to us.
This was the best baby Halloween book we found. We're still reading it to our daughter because she absolutely loves it. I checked out "Where is Baby's Christmas Present?" and didn't like it half as much as I liked this one.
Baby board book that is textured and has the flip and fold pages. Very cute for little fingers.

My daughter absolutely loves the lift-the-flap books, with Karen Katz being some of our favorites, and with my excitement of holidays, this one fits right in.

Baby searches for her pumpkin, discovering a host of adorably drawn Halloween objects before finally finding it.

So much fun, especially since B's Halloween costume looks just like the one Baby is wearing!
Another one of Christopher's favorites. He had it memorized after 5 times! So cute!

Cute and sweet! Simple, yet engaging. The glittery images were loved by my daughter!!
Very simple and mild Halloween book. Perfect for a toddler - nothing remotely scary.
Simple and cute lift the flap Halloween book. One to try in Halloween babytime.
This is my daughter's new favorite book! We can't go anywhere without it :o)
Super cute, super easy read. Good first Halloween book for a toddler.
