TITLE:  Pumpkins
AUTHOR:  Jacqueline Farmer
ILLUSTRATOR:  Phyllis Limbacher Tildes
PUBLISHER:  Charlesbridge

This book has lots of information about pumpkins including how they grow, various types, and how to carve a jack-o'-lantern.  There are also a couple of recipes at the end of pumpkin pie and toasted pumpkin seeds.  This is a book that is larger in size, and the illustrations are great.  There is quite a bit of text on each page compared to some picture books.

This would be appropriate for a unit on fall or pumpkins in 1st or 2nd grade.
