Picture Books About Pumpkins

Pumpkins are seen everywhere throughout fall, from decorations to pies! It’s a great time to read and learn about them, especially with preschool and kindergarten children.

Picture books are good for children ages 4 to 8 years old because they use a lot of illustrations to help tell the story.

Younger kids will begin to “read” books by looking at the pictures before they begin to recognize words.

You can plan a lot of fun activities to go along with reading pumpkin themed books, such as picking pumpkins, carving them, getting creative with making pumpkin decorations.

Don’t forget the yummy foods you can taste test. Plan an afternoon to spend baking pumpkin muffins and pies, or making pumpkin fudge and pumpkin mousse.
