Wonderful book that shows the stages of raising pumpkins pumpkin life cycle The book asks questions that children can answer or look in the back to find the answer I feel this would be great to use with groups of children who do not have the background knowledge of where food comes from.

I received this book from goodreads firstreads, and my 2 sons were excited when it came in the mail This is a very cute book for children to read, it was worded well for my 7 year old to read to his 2 year old brother who loved the pictures pointing out all the animals the pigs were a favorite of the little one and his older brother liked the flying donkeys As for me I enjoyed all the pumpkin facts at the end of the book some of them are very interesting I don t believe any child would be disappointed with this book, I really enjoyed the illustrations. I wanted to read something by Erzsi and this book was one I picked out The story follows a seasonal theme but goes through the months as the farm animals do their antics and Evy plants and harvests a pumpkin for Thanksgiving Would be a great read aloud for Thanksgiving in classrooms I love the illustrations and colors The book continually asks the questions What was Evy doing which could be the title of the book but it isn t I would recommend this to elementary teachers for the theme and the details in the back with a recipe, facts about pumpkins and retelling with specific pages and how to find the details of what Evy was doing. Great fall harvest pumpkin book to include in storytime could work for Preschool Kindergarten Loved how every page made the child guess what Evy was doing along with the silly things going on with the animals The facts and trivia at the back of the book is great as well You could also include this in a gardening theme. Cute story and the artwork is fantastic Before I even read it to the grandchildren, I spent time just looking at the pictures In accordance with FTC guidelines which I just discovered I did receive this book as a win from Goodreads. I received this book free of charge courtesy of GoodReads First Reads Giveaways This adorable kids book just arrived and my children have had me read it to them no less than 7 times This very silly story is centered around Evy and what she is doing growing a pumpkin Each page has something sweet and silly going on that Evy doesn t see or ignores because she is busy doing something to grow and care for her pumpkin At the end of the story all of Evy s hard work is completed and she shares a big pumpkin pie with all of her animal friends that were featured in the pages previous At the very end of the book there is a page which has a recipe for toasted pumpkin seeds, facts about pumpkins, and a list of what exactly Evy was doing on what pages.The illustrations are beautifully done throughout this entire book Lots of surprises are around for the reader who takes their time to really look at the art work Images in the clouds, animals doing something funny, writing, etc I think any child would love this book but those kids who budding gardeners like mine will really enjoy the story I found absolutely nothing to give me pause as a parent From infants to adults this book is really for everyone who enjoys a good short story with some silliness to it I really can t say enough for the illustrations either All around a winning book I added this book to my reading pile in July as an advanced reader copy, however it was about the same time I was adding a son to my children as well Now that it is October and pumpkins are on the brain, I keep coming back to this little book and I wanted to share about it While we have a few books in a pile for when we do a unit on pumpkins and pull out the preschool and kindergarten printables, this one is quite different Pumpkin Time is about the growth and process of a pumpkin pie and it is one to really get the wheels turning in a preschooler, or early elementary students mind on where a pumpkin and later pumpkin pie comes from The illustrations are attractive and with the right prompting this book could cause lots of dialogue and education jumping off points Read alone, without a few things pointed out I think children might miss things, but as a teaching aid I think this book is very useful Thanks to Sourcebooks for an ARC I received this product free for the purpose of reviewing it I received no other compensation for this review The opinions expressed in this review are my personal, honest opinions Your experience may vary Please read my full disclosure policy for details
