    1. Text-to-Self Connection:As I read this cute little story I was reminded of my yearly tradition. Every year I head up to north Georgia to a pumpkin farm to pick out the "very best pumpkin" for my autumn decorations. At the pumpkin farm, there is a variety of pumpkins to choose from just like on Mimi and Papa's farm in the picture book. While at the farm there are so many pumpkins to choose from that its easily possible to miss some of the better looking pumpkins. However, if you look hard enough [...]

    2. Real life neighbors and amazing book partners Mark Kimball Moulton and Karen Hillard Good have teamed up yet again for a magicial autumn delight. As with a couple of Moulton's stories, you think at first "ahhh it's going to be about this" when in fact, you find out it is actually about "that". Such is the case in The Very Best Pumpkin. I was first introduced to Moulton and Good's work through the Christmas classic A Snowman Named Just Bob. I began the book expecting a story about a snowman and f [...]

    3. Sweet little book about growing pumpkins and a blossoming friendship. Great for fall! Also includes some info on how to grow your own pumpkins at the end. Maybe I'm just partial because fall is my most favorite season. :)

    4. Dedication to family members, maybe kids? Nice to know they’re farmers. I wish there had been a zoomed out view of the farm. Does’t look like a farm, it just looks like a regular house.There seemed to be a farming message in the beginning, about the different things they grow. Strawberries in the spring, summer corn and fall pumpkins. ‘Poor little pumpkin, thought Peter. It’s awfully lonely out here.’How to take care of a plant. ‘carefully Peter cleared the weeds so the pumpkin culd [...]

    5. This was a cute read. I liked the illustrations a lot because they were so cute.The cover was a little misleading, because I thought the mouse was going to be a character, but there were just mice in the pumpkin patch and the boy was the main character. It was a nice touch that the girl was reading The Secret Garden. He finds pumpkins for people in the town, 3 different people I think, his teacher and a cop and someone else, but they're all on one page and I couldn't tell who was who at first. I [...]

    6. This book brought back memories of the Circleville Pumpkin show. If you've never heard of it, then you've heard of it now. Now that you've heard of it, make sure to check it out. I can't say enough about the pumpkin show (this recommendation is for people who love anything pumpkin).I enjoyed this book because I love pumpkins and fall is my favorite time of year. I'm not a fan of the font that was used. It makes for difficult reading. I have a fondness in my heart for pumpkins, so I was bias to t [...]

    7. I'm in a fall-ish mood today, and this book hit the spot :) It reminds me of when my family and I went to a fall festival when I was a kid.

    8. 11/20/17 Read with Naomi & Julia.A wonderful fall book with no mention of Halloween. A little boy has a generous heart and shares his perfect pumpkin and makes a new friend in the process. My girls enjoyed it.

    9. This is a cozy fall story about pumpkins and friendship. The beautiful illustrations will remind you of Mary Englebreit's work.

    10. Peter grows pumpkins on his grandparents farm each fall. One vine has grown right out of the pumpkin patch and right into the neighboring field. Peter cares for the lone pumpkin attached to the vine. But he isn't the only one who knows its there. Meg, the neighbor next door watches as the perfect pumpkin grows and grows. When the town's people come to pick their pumpkins Peter saves the perfect one for Meg.•This book isn't just about how pumpkins grow, but how friendships grow as well. Peter a [...]

    11. The Very Best PumpkinMoulton, M. (2010). The very best pumpkin. New York: Simon & Schuster Books for Young ReadersThis story is about a boy named Peter who lives on a farm with his parents and papa. The farm grows crops all year round, but the crop that brings the most excitement are the pumpkins.

    12. * It would not work for Toddler Storytime, but it is perfect for children at the pre-school level and above.* I love the vocabulary used in creating this book. * The book also could be paired with a botany project to encourage STEM. * This book is charming, and will work well with classrooms that are studying harvest. Growing up on Mimi and Papa's farm, Peter knows a lot about caring for pumpkins. One summer Peter finds a lonely pumpkin all by itself in the field, and with his tender care, the p [...]

    13. My almost-five-year-old son picked this book out from the library last week. I was a little concerned when I saw that the boy who lived on the pumpkin farm was named "Peter". As a nursery rhyme connoisseur, I knew that could go very wrong. Fortunately, this book did not go in THAT direction. This was a very sweet, if a bit unsubstantial, tale. The artwork, however, is delightful and a bit retro (as in 1970s retro), and helps propel this story along nicely.

    14. In this book a boy named Peter is tending to a special pumpkin that is growing at his grandparent's pumpkin patch. When Meg, the lilttle girl from next door and her parents, come to the pumpkin patch to find a pumpkin, she has a hard time finding the right one. That is until Peter gives her his special pumpkin. At the end of this book a directions for growing a pumpkin are available. This would make an excellent science project!

    15. This is a sweet tale about pumpkins during the Halloween season. Though not specifically about the holiday itself, the story about growing pumpkins for the holiday is fun and educational. I love the blossoming friendship that develops in the story as well as the care and love the young boy gives to his pumpkins. The illustrations are colorful and we really enjoyed reading this story together.

    16. Definitely for preschool because of length. A cute book about a boy tending a lonely pumpkin growing far away from all the other pumpkins. He waters and loves it till he gives it away to a friend who and the act helps their friendship grow.

    17. What a great story to readaloud to preschoolers in the fall! While we watch Peter tending a pumpkin that is growing outside the patch, a new family moves in next door. When they come to the farm to pick out their pumpkin, it's clear that Peter and Meg are bound to be friends.

    18. 25 months - we will have to read this again in the fall. A cute story about living on a farm, growing pumpkins, making friends and sharing. Great illustrations and nice vocabulary words. I'd buy this one.

    19. Since it is a new season, then reading books all about pumpkins is great! These books teach many lessons and vocabulary of what happens in Autumn.

    20. Wonderful illustrations - colorful and whimsical with a three-dimensional touchable suggestion. The storyline is one of discovery and learning and friendship and sharing. Very well-done!

    21. Sweet illustrations, a little Gooseberry Patch-y, match a story that is also sweet, if a little uneventful. "Watercolors, instant coffee, and bleach."

    22. This is a cute book that has to do with seasons, growing pumpkins, and friendship. This would be an ideal book to read during the fall or when you need a book that talks about forming friendships.
