From School Library Journal
PreSchool-Grade 1–Another entry in the popular and useful science series, this title explains in simple, clear language the stages in the development of a seed into a pumpkin. A couple of easy recipes and experiments are appended. Appealing watercolor-and-pencil illustrations show children involved in planting and tending the pumpkins, and help make the process and the passage of time understandable to this audience.–Sally R.

PreS-Gr. 2. This satisfying volume from the Let's-Read-and-Find-Out series tells and shows how a pumpkin plant grows. With a level of detail that seems just right for young children, the text clearly presents how the plant develops from seed to mature pumpkin as well as how it obtains and distributes water and nutrients. Pfeffer uses plain English rather than specialized terminology, explaining processes with precision while keeping the text accessible to her audience. Though the only character mentioned in the text is the farmer, the artwork features three children who join him to drop seeds into the ground, water them, and observe the plants as they grow. Their cheerful presence adds to the appeal of the illustrations, which are precise, pleasing drawings tinted with sunlit colors. The last two pages give instructions for two activities, "Roasted Pumpkin Seeds" and "How Plants Drink Water." An excellent introduction to plant development in general and pumpkins in particular.

The book goes through the process of how a pumpkin seed germinates once it's given certain conditions (such as light, soil, water, etc) and uses the energy from the sun to make sugar for the plant to use to grow to be a big plant that can produce its own pumpkins. The cycle is well written and a great intro into a more scientific concept than simply "a seed grows into a plant that makes a pumpkin". We would recommend this book for any child interested in gardens, plants, nature, seasons or cycles of plant life.
