Spookley the Square Pumpkin by Joe Troiano

61kDSd9EWAL._SX258_BO1,204,203,200_OK this is the most adorable story about a little pumpkin who realizes that he is different than all the other pumpkins in the pumpkin patch. It is an adorable halloween book. Of course in the story he is picked on and teased by all the other pumpkins for being square and not round but in the end he proves that being different isn’t bad and he helps save the day.  I mean come on his name is so perfect, Spookley, it’s not really scary at all but rather quite adorable.

I love any story that talks about differences being ok. I would take some time and talk about differences between you and your child or your child and one of their friends and celebrate those differences, or maybe just acknowledge them and not pass any sort of judgement on them because differences are normal between people. We would all be so boring if we were the same! If you have pumpkins in your house pull them out and notice the differences between them. If you don’t have multiple pumpkins use this picture!
