My three year old and I loved too many pumpkins. (I’m not sure who enjoyed it more.). Rebecca Estelle doesn’t like pumpkins, but, when one smashes to slimey smithereens in her yard one fall (my child loves this part), she learns to make the best of a bad situation. Before purchasing I had read some reviews stating this book had “strong language.” Don’t worry. It’s fine for toddlers. (Older children would probably like it too, but I cannot say for certain.). I hope you enjoy! Click to order.
My children and husband absolutely love these National Geographic books! I think we have them all. We rotate them according to the season. They are nonfiction but use great pictured of real kids, and they’re short enough to be an easy bedtime story. Click to order.
book review “I bought this as a fall book for my 3 year old son. He loves this book and picks it most nights before bed. He related to it since we also went to a farm to pick our pumpkins this year. It’s a cute simple book about fall and Halloween and I’m sure is one we will enjoy for quite a few more years. Click to order now!
