It’s pumpkin spice season! Fall is my absolute favorite time of year and I so badly wish we lived somewhere where the leaves turned and the air was crisp. But since we don’t, I’ll just have to settle for getting lost in a good pumpkin book with Miss E. Below you will find a list of books that we are reading and loving about pumpkins!
Growing Pumpkins by Melvin Berger– This book explains the whole entire process of a pumpkins life from getting the land ready for planting to being picked in the fall. It is a good book to practice sequencing.
Seed, Sprout, Pumpkin Pie! by Jill Esbaum– This has been one of my daughter’s favorites this month. There are vibrant photos and simple but descriptive adjectives throughout. Since we have been seeing pumpkins this whole month she is easily making connections.
How Many Seeds in a Pumpkin? by Margaret McNamara–This is my favorite fiction book to explain how you can’t always judge a book by it’s cover. Believe it or not, the smallest pumpkins often have the most seeds!
Little Boo by Stephen Wunderli– This story follows a little seed named Boo who wants to be scary but isn’t. As he patiently waits throughout all four seasons, he is continually encouraged by the nurturing wind. In the end, he fulfills his destiny!
When The Leaf Blew In by Steve Metzger– So this one isn’t actually about pumpkins but it is about fall so I figure it still works. E liked this story so much it’s staying on the shelves even though all the other leaf books have been taken down! This is a sweet circle story (like the If You Give A Mouse a…. Books if you’re familiar with that style of writing) My daughter is constantly bringing me this one to read! Because the illustrations give it away, she likes stating what will happen before the pages turn. Simple and fun.
Pumpkin Countdown by Joan Holub– Joan has written many stories in this same style and we enjoyed reading the Apple Countdown last month. There is so much going on in the illustrations of this story that my daughter is constantly asking questions. There is counting, rhyming and plenty to visually explore.
What’s your favorite season? Is it currently sweater weather where you live? Let me know in the comments so I can come visit! 🙂 (It’s still in the 90’s here!)
