Read for: Early Reader Challenge
Synopsis: "Mrs. Connor's first-grade class is going on a field trip! They're headed to the pumpkin patch to pick out pumpkins. Katie dreams of finding the perfect pumpkin. But the one she chooses isn't perfect at all. It's too small! But then her father shows her that wonderful things often come in small packages."
My Review: We picked up a bunch of fall Ready to Read books for Munchkin and this was at the top of our list to read. Munchkin loves going to the farms and picking out a pumpkin in the patches. This was a fun adventure with the familiar Robin Hill School class, and it had a great message about how everyone's idea of perfect is different. Some kids wanted the biggest pumpkin, others wanted tall and round pumpkins and some wanted a small pumpkin. It definitely taught a lesson about not judging others about their size, shape or preferences. It was easy for Munchkin to read with short sentences with easy words to sound out and sight words, it also had a lot of repetition to help those young readers gain confidence.
My Rating: This was a great fall book to read, Munchkin really enjoyed it and it gave us some great conversation starters about what makes things perfect. We give it a rating of Four Paws!
Good Night! Sweet Dreams!
