The Pumpkin Book by Gail Gibbons is an entertaining and informative book for elementary age children. This book is most appropriate for kindergarten through third grade students. The pictures are large and colorful. The text is limited mostly to the bottom of the page. Elementary students will need some vocabulary defined for them - examples: sprout, minerals, stamen, pollen, stigma, nectar, pollination, and harvest. A worthy addition to any parent or teachers' October activities.

The Pumpkin Book will be a sure hit with teachers doing theme planning around October events. Ms. Gibbon blends factual information with enough interesting tidbits to keep the attention of even squirmy 2nd graders. Excellent color illustrations, and recommended for K through 3rd grades, as well as for the teachers.

The seller advertised this book well. It was a smooth transition. This book helped to teach my October literacy unit.

I am a kindergarten teacher and this book fit well into the new common core curriculum. I used it to compare and contrast with a fictional book about pumpkins and we did a T-chart to compare the two books.
I would recommend this book to other teachers.

I love Gail Gibbons non~ fiction books for my ESL grades 1-5 students. We use them for models for how to write "All About Books". Gail Gibbons covers many non fiction topics ...her books are great for learning and are interesting to read!!!

Used it with an investigative approach to pumpkins and squashes, as an informational text for shared reading, as a mentor text for "all about" books for writing workshop with first graders. Each time we read it, they beg for more.

I expected the book to be a children's book but the content is so varied and the material all over the map. I would not give this book to a small child and I would have to pick content to share. I was disappointed with the book.

Purchased this book for my three girls 10,7,5. The oldest found it informative. All felt it was rather boring. Not a bad book but would skip it unless you've got a real curious kid.

This is a great book to have in any collection. I love to read it to my classroom. I finally have my own instead of borrowing someone else 's.
