Description


Big, small, round, tall -- pumpkins come in all shapes and sizes. Here one learns the marvels of the growth cycle of these incredible plants -- from flat seeds, to thick vines covered in golden flowers, to brilliant orange pumpkins! Gail Gibbons also relates the special role pumpkins played in the first Thanksgiving. Simple and clear directions for drying seeds, planting and tending pumpkin patches, and carving funny or scary faces are included in the book, along with a fascinating section on pumpkin facts and lore.
