Blending factual information with fun tidbits, Gail Gibbons takes a popular autumn symbol and explores its growth cycle from seed to table. The informative text, including instructions for young gardeners to grow and harvest their own pumpkins and to carve jack-o-lanterns, is clearly presented.

From AudioFile:

This book is a perfect example of why it's so hard to turn a good nonfiction picture book into an audiobook. Narrator Polly Collier is very good. Her strong, clear voice makes her sound much like a teacher, and I appreciated her explanation to young listeners that she would be reading the text portion of a picture book. However, the presentation is still confusing, and I wonder how nonreaders and early readers will be able to conceptualize the idea of words and pictures. It's a wonderful book, full of interesting trivia, but I think nonreaders will need someone to help them make the connection to the pictures; transitional and comfortable readers will be fine.
