Book Synopsis



From an acclaimed science author, here's everything about pumpkins--including how they grow!

In this cheerfully-illustrated, simply-presented book, children can learn about the growth cycle and many varieties of pumpkins, and even how to plant their own. Award-winning author Gail Gibbons also relates the special role pumpkins played in the first Thanksgiving, the history behind carving pumpkins into jack'o'lanterns, and how pumpkins are still part of our celebrations today.


The book features bold, clearly-labeled illustrations, directions for drying seeds, and even how to carve funny or scary faces into your pumpkin (with an adult's help), along with a fascinating section on pumpkin facts and lore. Perfect for aspiring farmers and kids who can't wait for Halloween!

Great Informative Book about Pumpkins

4 out of 5 stars
Thumbs up graphic, would recommend
SarahS - 3 years ago, Verified purchaser
Such a great informative book about pumpkins. I loved that in the most! Thing that I did not care for, is how the author included the celebration of Halloween at the end of the book. My only problem is that we don’t celebrate Halloween, and I wasn’t happy to find that there. It would be nice, if the author would mention the inclusion of Halloween in the summary.
