Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Though they have little to do with the science behind the planet’s changing seasons, the new titles in the Picture the Seasons series do a fabulous job of conjuring up the sights, smells, and sensations of a brisk autumn. Using minimal text with National Geographic’s typically fine photographs, Esbaum brings out familiar, comforting details of the outdoors—and slips in a lesson or two so skillfully readers won’t even mind. Perfect for Halloween, Seed, Sprout, Pumpkin, Pie, is a veritable festival of orange featuring the expected (but still satisfying) panoramas of pumpkin fields and market stands. More surprising are the shots of the rarely appreciated pumpkin flower, pumpkins so big people make boats out of them, and a narrative twist: “The End. Unless . . . was there something else pumpkins might be used for?” The leering jack-’o-lanterns on the next page provide a scary jolt. Fun, cozy, evocative stuff. Grades K-2. --Daniel Kraus

I absolutely love this new series. I can't think of any better way to visually stimulate your kiddo and get everyone in the mood for the season. Seed, Sprout, Pumpkin, Pie reads like a high-end glossy magazine with outstanding photography. Fill your child's head with clarifying detail regarding the life of a pumpkin and the harvest season. You'll want every book in this series - I know I do!

I was looking for a book that illustrated the pumpkin life cycle for my class that was both easy-to-understand for kindergarten students and had excellent pictures, and this book fit my expectations perfectly.

This book is simply amazing! I love the simple photographs that tell the pumpkin life cycle. My kindergarten students love to look at the pictures and retell the facts on each page.

The photography of this book was beautiful and very detailed to teach youngsters about growing, harvesting and the "circle of life" of a pumpkin. My grandkids are enjoying this informative book! Thank you.

All of these National Geographic books are great and you cannot go wrong for the price. They have beautiful photography and make learning come alive for kids. Both my five year old and seven year old love these books and we bring them out as the seasons change to help illustrate what is going on in our own back yard. Your child will not even know he/she is learning!
