Pumpkin Time! review

The day the cows strolled down Main Street in fancy hats...Evy didn't notice. What was Evy doing? Evy is so focused on watching her garden grow that she misses all the silliness going on around her--pigs DANCING, donkeys FLYING, and sheep HAVING A PICNIC.But after Evy's spent all year taking care of her garden, everyone's invited to pumpkin time! (goodreads summary)

While Evy is diligently tending to her garden, she does not even notice all the animals silly antics... Here is a fun read-aloud book just in time for the fall harvest season. Starting in spring and working through fall, we watch Evy hard at work growing something special for a feast. It also makes for a great interactive story as each page asks, "What is Evy doing?."  Kids will pick up on clues from the colorful illustrations showing her researching pumpkins and being committed to her gardening.  In the end, Evy has a yummy treat to share with all! The last page has recipes for toasting pumpkin seeds, some interesting pumpkin facts and answers to what Evy was doing. I think this is a "just right book" for ages 3-6.~
