The Pumpkin Book

by Gail Gibbons


"Using bright artwork in her familiar style, Gibbons takes on a favorite fall subject . . . A good resource for educators, this also has plenty of kid appeal."

"Bold, clear watercolor illustrations and a concise text work together to explain the planting, cultivating, and harvesting of pumpkins. . . . Gibbons succeeds once again at covering a topic in a useful way at just the right level for beginning readers."
