TITLE: In Search of the Perfect Pumpkin
AUTHOR: Gloria Evangelista
ILLUSTRATOR: Shawn Shea
PUBLISHER: Fulcrum Resources
Each year a boy and his family search for the perfect pumpkin. Their search takes them to the local grocery story, a pumpkin patch, and an organic farm. Then Mom has the idea that they should grow their own. Will they be able to grow the "greatest, most unbelievably scrumptious pumpkins of all?"
Besides the story there are also random pumpkin facts in smaller print at the bottom of each page. This book is a fun read to include in a fall unit on pumpkins. Elementary aged children would enjoy this book, the book cover lists it for ages 4-10.
