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

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!

I thought that this book was really informative and held my 6 year old daughter's interest. The pictures are beautiful and when we went pumpkin picking she quoted facts from the book. I also bought the book "Apples" which is done the same way as this. I love both books and think they are a must have for fall!!

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.

The Book review:
Awesome pictures and text. This is pefect for our fall study and makes it very real and relatable. It is not just a synopsis of the cycle of seed to pumpkin. It has pictures that most children have never seen, cows eating left over pumpkin, pumpkin fields strewn with pumpkins, pumpkin mountains. It is a very fun read and great fodder for discussion.

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.
