StoryWalk–It’s Pumpkin Time
I set up the book “It’s Pumpkin Time” by Zoe Hall in the pumpkin patch.
It’s a perfect story to tell the life cycle of a pumpkin.
It also was a way to encourage the families to take time and walk around the patch.
Shannon, the farmer, pointed out that the pumpkins this year are reseeding themselves. As we walked through the story we saw evidence of that happening.
New blossoms were growing on vines.
And we saw small green pumpkins attached to vines.
I overheard parents making comparisons to the book and their child’s pumpkin choice.
In the end they all found their perfect pumpkin for Hallowe’en.
You can watch a video of the book here.
