The Very Best Pumpkin


The Very Best Pumpkin by Mark Kimball Moulton and illustrated by Karen Hillard Good, centers on one of my favorite fall activities; finding the perfect pumpkin or pumpkins as it is in our case. We're not ones to go all out on Holiday/seasonal decorating but having pumpkins of all shapes and sizes to set around the house, to carve and to enjoy toasted pumpkins seeds from is definitely something I look forward to each year. The story starts sharing how Peter, a young boy, helps out on his Grandparents farm. They plant strawberries in the spring, grow corn but Peter's favorite is pumpkin season. I love how he helps customers find the perfect pumpkin to fit their needs. And the story is also about a special friendship that is growing right along with the pumpkins! It's a very sweet story in so many aspects including the old fashioned feeling drawings that are filled with lots of fun, whimsical details.
