We recently explored the pumpkin patch and if B had her way, we’d have 17 pumpkins on the front porch. We brought home one perfect pumpkin and she painted it. Ain’t it a beaut? 😉We’ve also been reading books that fit the season, like Seed, Sprout, Pumpkin, Pie by Jill Esbaum (Happy early birthday, Mom!) and a favorite since last year at this time, Duck & Goose Find a Pumpkin.When sweet, silly Duck & Goose see their friend, Thistle, lugging his own beautiful pumpkin, they realize they need one, too. They search and search– looking in all sorts of places for their perfect pumpkin.
“Is our pumpkin in the log, Goose?”
“Is our pumpkin in the leaf pile, Duck?”
Around they go, looking everywhere except the one place that they’re sure to find a good pumpkin. Eventually, they find it– thanks to their friend Thistle.
Last year, 1.5 YO B picked up on the repetition of this book and it was so much fun to read the book with her, and she still loves the call and response aspect of this book.
