When it gets close to Holidays or Seasons I like to read books to the girls according to what Holiday or Season it might happen to be.
The Bumpy Little Pumpkin by Margery Cuyler
"It's Halloween, and the three siblings are looking for pumpkins to carve into jack-o'-lanterns. Little Nell's selection is deemed too small and ugly by her sisters. Not to be deterred, Little Nell enlists the help of Reindeer, Hare, and Bear Cub and creates a special jack-o'-lantern that can proudly take its place on the porch. As BIG Mama says, Jack-o'-lanterns come in all shapes and sizes!, a line that can be reassuringly applied to children as well. Reminiscent of Charlie Brown's devotion to his scraggly Christmas tree, Little Nell's story is just as satisfying, stressing the worth of a child's handiwork and the value of creating. The colorful cartoons provide the perfect complement." from Amazon
My thoughts-My girls LOVED this book. We also have the snowman one with the same characters. It's such a cute book about this little tiny girl in this family of giants really. She finds a little bumpy pumpkin and has her animal friends help her turn it into a jack-o-lantern. If you are looking for a good pumpkin book to read to your kids I would highly recommend this one.
