Pumpkin Day! by Candice Ransom -- ADVISABLE
A family visits a pumpkin patch, then carves the pumpkins for Halloween. The rhyming text is simple and the font is large, making it perfect for newer readers while not dumbing it down at all. The illustrations are absolutely adorable, full of life and humor and fun. In areas where visits to pumpkin patches are common, this would be a wonderful addition to a classroom, school library, or public library. It would also work well for an autumn-themed unit.
