PreS-Gr. 2. This satisfying volume from the Let's-Read-and-Find-Out series tells and shows how a pumpkin plant grows. With a level of detail that seems just right for young children, the text clearly presents how the plant develops from seed to mature pumpkin as well as how it obtains and distributes water and nutrients. Pfeffer uses plain English rather than specialized terminology, explaining processes with precision while keeping the text accessible to her audience. Though the only character mentioned in the text is the farmer, the artwork features three children who join him to drop seeds into the ground, water them, and observe the plants as they grow. Their cheerful presence adds to the appeal of the illustrations, which are precise, pleasing drawings tinted with sunlit colors. The last two pages give instructions for two activities, "Roasted Pumpkin Seeds" and "How Plants Drink Water." An excellent introduction to plant development in general and pumpkins in particular.
