A Children’s Book about Pumpkins – “Fall Pumpkins” by Martha Rustad

This is a cute book about the life cycle of pumpkins – from seeds to pumpkin pie – told from the viewpoint of 2 little kids.  It is about 24 pages long, and beautifully illustrated by Amanda Enright.   It has lots of information about pumpkins in general, which is provided in a way that doesn’t distract from the story.

My girls were already familiar with how pumpkins are grown since we have had them in our garden, so in that respect, it wasn’t a new topic.   But they had fun picking different things out of the story and relating them to our garden.

I let my first grader read the story, and she didn’t have any problem.  There were a couple of words that she needed help with, but she enjoyed the story.  My preschooler liked the pictures and the story.

I received this book via the NetGalley program.  I was not required to provide a positive review.  All opinions are my own.
