Favorite Pumpkin Books

Here is a list of some pumpkin books we read. You can find the list of Some of Our Favorite Fall Books here. We have made a fun and simple pumpkin craft, so read on! 🙂

 It’s Pumpkin Time! Five Little Pumpkins (Harper Growing Tree) The Itsy Bitsy Pumpkin

It’s Pumpkin Time! This book was our favorite. We enjoyed reading about the pumpkin life cycle and Fall.
Five Little Pumpkins (Harper Growing Tree) This book was fun for Brother to read since it is an easy rhyming book. We made an awesome craft about this book. Read about it HERE.
Sister really loved the cute illustrations in this book. Even after our lesson, she kept going back to it to “read” the story.

 Click, Clack, Boo!: A Tricky Treat Jeb Scarecrow’s Pumpkin Patch Franklin’s Halloween


Click, Clack, Boo!: A Tricky Treat We really liked this book because we have been reading Click, Clac,k Moo: Cows That Type for a long time. This is following along the same lines, but with a theme.
Jeb Scarecrow’s Pumpkin Patch was a cute story with beautiful illustrations. Franklin’s Halloween is a popular book because of Franklin (main character) and it is part of a series.
