"Fall Pumpkins" ~ Children's Book with a Little Somethin' for Mom and Dad

Published by: Cloverleaf Books
Ages: 1-Grownups!

Grammie's Review:

Here's a wonderful little book for children of all ages, really. With colorful pages and little friends that carry a child through the story of a seedling to the yummy treats of roasted pumpkin seeds, a child will love and appreciate this book. And, parents will like the bubbled notes accompaning that give how tos from everything on planting to pie-making, as well.

The simple illustrations on planting and caring for pumpkins couldn't be easier for children to follow, which is a feature making this book a treasure. So many children love to garden and this is a way to simplify that process and to give them a BIG reward in the long run. My grands love to garden.

I like that the size is appropriate for little hands and young readers!

My only hesitation is the book may offer too many instructions and not enough of a funny story for children. But, when all is said and done, not every book needs to be fun and games, sometimes children want a serious book that's great in pictures and gives them a "how-to" just like adults do.
