Little Boo by Stephen Wunderli- ADVISABLE

Wunderli, Stephen. Little Boo, PICTURE BOOK. Henry Holt and Company, 2014. $16.99. A little seed wants to be scary and tries to “boo” at everything he meets. He’s just not big enough yet and the wind tells him to settle down, tucks him into a bed of soil, and the seed takes a long, long nap. When he awakes, he reaches for the sun and grows big enough to try to scare again. After growing and growing the seed finally becomes a pumpkin and eventually, a jack o’ lantern who can scare just about anyone! The star of this book are the illustrations. It’s a cute, basic Halloween pumpkin story, but with the pictures, it’s much better. Great for a little information on the seasons, as well as the growing cycle of a pumpkin. PRE-K, K-3- ADVISABLE.
