It's Pumpkin Time!



"It's Pumpkin Time!" by Zoe Hall is a Halloween/Fall picture book great for toddlers and preschoolers. 

A young boy and girl plant pumpkin seeds and explain how they take care of their pumpkin patch as the pumpkins continue to grow. When they are ready to be picked, they load them up in their wheelbarrow. When the time is right, they carve them into jack-o'-lanterns! 

Here is a sample text: "Every week we water them and pull up lots of weeds. Soon we see buds where flowers will bloom. The yellow flowers show us where our pumpkins will grow. At first the pumpkins are green and tiny but they grow bigger and bigger."
