The Little Pumpkin Book


The Little Pumpkin Book

by Katy Bratun
Random House Books for Young Readers

Illustrated in full color. In the spring, two children plant some pumpkin seeds. They tend the plants all summer and harvest the pumpkins come fall, when it's time to carve them into jack-o'-lanterns and bake them into pies. When springtime rolls around again, they plant the seeds they've been saving all winter long.

Ideas to Explore Together

Before you read: Show your child a pumpkin. Let your child feel the smooth skin. Cut it open and take out the seeds. Show them to your child. Let him fell the slimey insides

As you read: Do you think you would like to grow a pumpkin?

After you read: Dry some of the seeds, put them in a safe place and plant them in the spring after reading the book again.
