Duck and Goose Find a Pumpkin by Tad Hills

Duck and Goose Find a Pumpkin!

Tad Hills


I have a REALLY, SUPER FUN book for Toddler Tuesday today! I always really like the Duck and Goose books.  If you haven’t read any of them yet, you should! The series follows a young duck and a young goose as they become friends and the antics they get up to!

In this installment, Duck and Goose see their friend Thistle has found a pumpkin so they decide that they want to find one too! They search everywhere.  On top of a stump, in a hollow long, and under water! But they can’t find one anywhere! Don’t worry, they find one after some help from Thistle! I laughed out loud when Thistle suggested the final place to look–the pumpkin patch!


This book is pretty simple, but on sturdy board book pages (but it’s a big board book!).  And the illustrations are fantastic, as always.  Really, if you haven’t done Duck and Goose yet.. DO IT NOW!


Pumpkin Search and Match!

For prep work: Cut out 8 pumpkins in four different colors (so each pumpkin will have a color pair!). (Or you can do less… just make sure that each pumpkin you cut out has at least one partner of the same color!)

Then hide the pumpkins in places you think your little (and friends!?) will be able to find them.

Then have your little search for the cut out pumpkins, just like Duck and Goose did! Once they find all the pumpkins, have them match the colors together.
