Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

A rabbit family visits a farm and learns how the gourd grows, discovers its different varieties and uncovers a bit of jack-o'-lantern history ("In olden times, they hollowed out potatoes and turnips and beets for lanterns") in Pumpkin Day! by Nancy Elizabeth Wallace. Her signature collage spreads starring bunny characters feature factoids and pumpkin jokes throughout-plus recipes.

From School Library Journal

Kindergarten-Grade 2-One fall day, a rabbit family visits Pumpkin Hollow Farm to select pumpkins for cooking, decorating, and carving. Facts and riddles appear on signs scattered throughout the stand. Mrs. Bell, who works there, keeps pictures in her pocket that demonstrate how the gourds grow, and she shows them to the curious bunnies. Later, back at home, the family carves jack-o'-lanterns before enjoying a supper of "pumpkin muffins, toasted pumpkin seeds sprinkled on salad, and for dessert, pumpkin pie!" Recipes appear on lined, illustrated cards. The characters, created from cut-paper collages and placed on colorful backgrounds, are eye-catching and endearing. Children will love poring over the details and absorbing the information that has been expertly woven into the artwork. A superb blending of fiction and nonfiction.

More About the Author

I love being out in Nature in all seasons - hiking, camping, star gazing, playing in the snow, gardening, beach combing - looking... listening...touching... being filled with WONDER. Nature is where many of the ideas for books come from. I love doing research and having those - WOW! I didn't know that - moments. I also paint seascapes... and love going to art museums. Guess which of my books that inspired! I write and illustrate books about what I love to do and what I care about. I love sharing with children and adults, my writing process, how I create my artwork and sharing what I have learned about visual literacy. Happy me, lucky me, being a children's book author and illustrator.

As I read this to my 3-year-old, I thought about how great it would be for a homeschooler. Not only is the art superb, but it includes so much about the history of the pumpkin, how they grow, the fact that they are berries, etc... And it does so without feeling textbookish. Heck, I learned a lot. LOL!

A great book that combines a fictional story with facts about pumpkins. All of the authors books are great for preschoolers and Kindergartners.

Found this book while looking for a book about Autumn. It is so cute. The art is adorable and the story is too. The bunny family celebrates "Pumpkin Day" doing all sorts of pumpkin things. There are facts, recipes and jokes about pumpkins perfectly woven into the story. Can't wait to get a few more of this authors titles.

Format: Paperback Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I might have said this story was good for young children, but the scientific bent and the large amount of text on most pages give me pause. I also don't like the typeface: Geometric seems perpetually bold. The author-illustrator is said to have used paper to create her artwork, though it looks for all the world like felt. I love bunnies, but it is difficult for paper cutout bunnies to show much in the way of emotion. The book design seems a tad too digital, in particular the glow effect for the title.

This is still a cute story, and no one can take issue with the positive family values. However, there are better bunny collage books (Bunny's First Snowflake), better bunny agriculture books (Bear and Bunny Grow Tomatoes), and better bunny Halloween books (You Don't Get a Carrot Unless You're a Bunny).

Three recipes included.

This is a good children's book. The illustrations are especially noteworthy. They appear to be paper cutouts of the various topics.

The story is a family (pictured as rabbits) that goes to a pumpkin patch. The family looks at pumpkins and then brings two home. They make jack o lantern out f them. Along the way there is a reasonable amount of history and facts.

It also includes a couple of recipes- one for pancakes, the main ingredient of which is "pancake mix." It might have been better to give real recipes. There are also instructions for cooking pumpkin seeds that doesn't include removing the hulls. We always remove them because of taste.

Generally we like the book. It has a lot to offer our grandchildren next fall.

Format: Paperback Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
Pumpkin Day! is fun introduction to pumpkins, with a good story plus pumpkin facts, jokes and even recipes for pumpkin pancakes, pumpkin muffins and toasted pumpkin seeds. I learned from the trivia that pumpkins are berries and that Maxima pumpkins are the largest fruit.

What I liked the most was the explanation of how pumpkins grow. Our food in the U.S. is often far-removed from the farm and children may only see it in grocery stores (or farmers' markets if they are lucky enough to have access to them). The bunny family visits Pumpkin Hollow Farm to select pumpkins for carving. The two younger bunnies learn about how pumpkin seeds are planted and sprout, requiring water, weeding, fertilizer & bug control in order to grow.

While the content rates a solid 4.5 stars, I am not a huge fan of the paper-cut art illustrations as they make the book seem slightly dated. I would have preferred more traditional illustration.

If you enjoy this book, you may want to check out The Valentine Express which is by the same author and about another family of bunnies. I will be giving copies of that to my godchildren next Valentine's Day.

I have found Nancy Elizabeth Wallace books to be fun, informative and exceptionally creative. Pumpkin Day! does not disappoint. I enjoyed seeing the parts of a pumpkin as well as its life cycle. Children will get a glimpse into what it takes to grow pumpkins as they follow a rabbit family of four throughout their special "Pumpkin Day!"

The rabbit family makes fascinating discoveries at Pumpkin Hollow Farm. In addition, there is pumpkin trivia along with lighthearted jokes. I appreciated having the opportunity to share the warmth of autumn in a tangible way through re-creating three pumpkin inspired child-friendly recipes (clearly written and intricately illustrated in signature Wallace collage)...Food, Family, Fun...I love this book.
