Just when I thought we'd gotten to the end of all the really good pumpkin themed children's books, all of the pumpkin patch books I put on hold at the library, started streaming in. Below are a few of our favorites, each with something special, or unique.
The Pumpkin Patch by Patricia Miles Martin, is an old fashion, but still very relevant story of friendship, and finds, on a kindergarten field trip to the pumpkin patch. I love that the pumpkins at the patch are 10 cents a piece, and that Tom Haul's pen scratched, illustrations are very similar in style to Charles Shultz' Peanuts' characters.
And, speaking of Peanuts...
It's another Halloween, and Linus is back in the pumpkin patch, with high hopes for seeing The Great Pumpkin, at last. Tad Hills' Duck & Goose are back too, just trying to find a pumpkin patch, in a story probably best for toddlers, but cute enough to engage the entire family.
You can find many more children's book reviews, and recommendations at this week's What My Child is Reading Blog Hop, hosted by Mouse Grows, Mouse Learns.
I hope to link up with it later today, but for now we're on a road trip - over the river, and through the woods to...you know the song right?
It's great to be a homeschooler.
