They convey so much joy and delight that they make me want to make a pumpkin pie, or pumpkin bread, or pumpkin cookies.

This book would a be terrific book for preschool and Kindergarten classes on Autumn / Fall and all the wonderful things you can do with a pumpkin during October and November, and especially for children who don't live up north and know have only known pumpkins to be purchased a church sales or a supermarkets.

The book talks about all kinds of shapes and sizes that pumpkins can be found in and how they are grown in rows on a farm. Not only can pumpkins become Jack-o-lanterns but taken to fairs to win a prize, made into pumpkin pie, muffins, bread, roasted pumpkin seeds, pumpkin butter or even a scarecrow's head.

I like very much how Kenneth Spengler illustrated this book, it is warm, colorful and friendly. His jack-o-lanterns are cute and not scary! This book is also rated as a Step 2 book and is geared for preschool - 1st grade.It says: Does your child recognize familiar word on site and sounds out new word with help. Basic vocabulary, short sentences and simple stories. I'd have to say that for a preschooler they would be pretty advanced reader to read this book. I think it is more for a 1st graders.

We started reading this book when my child was 2.5 and we all still love it now that she's almost 5 and learning to read. We used to only have it out at the start of fall and put it away after Thanksgiving, but now it is out year round. It has fun illustrations that as she learns to read help her figure out what the words are, a fun rhyming text and just captures the magic of pumpkins and that time of year. She asks for it frequently, and I really never get tired of reading it with her:)

This is one of my 3 year old's favorite books. It's such a cute description of pumpkins - the different sizes, colors, and the different things that can be made from pumpkins - like pumpkin pie. Very good book for little kids!

It is always a delight to read a poem by Charles Ghigna, no matter what the context. But a poem in Easy Reader form, about pumpkins, and read in mid-October? That is enchanting.

This poem is about pumpkins, so, as expected, Hallowe'en makes an appearance, but this is not a poem about Hallowe'en. It is perfect for reading now, almost three weeks before Hallowe'en, and it will be perfect for reading well into November. Unlike most Easy Reader books, Ghigna wrote a poem suited for young readers; he did not write an Easy Reader book in forced verse. There is a difference: one is poetry, the other is doggerel.

Kenneth Spengler's illustrations are perfectly suited for the text. They convey so much joy and delight that they make me want to make a pumpkin pie, or pumpkin bread, or pumpkin cookies.
