A very informational book to use in your classroom to teach about different types of pumpkins and their life cycle. It gives examples of where to find pumpkins, what we could use them for and where we can find them.

My second graders loved this book. Before Halloween I read it to them. This book offers so many things to students, and can be very useful for parents and teachers. It tells a little history on the pumpkin, how it grows, when to harvest it, fun facts about it, and ways to decorate it. The illustrations are colorful and charming. I found this to be a very fun, useful book. 1-3
