AUTHOR: Jacqueline Farmer
ILLUSTRATOR: Phyllis Limbacher Tildes
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.
