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!

Seed, Sprout, Pumpkin, Pie by Jill Esbaum

Seed, Sprout, Pumpkin, Pie

I feel like this is my official WELCOME! to #BHGFallFun ! The book I’m talking about today would be a perfect read to mark off some of those BINGO squares 🙂

So this is a nonfiction book, but I really enjoyed it! There are some really INSANE pictures (some really, really, really big pumpkins.  Like, so big I can’t even describe, you need to see!!).  This book is essentially the life cycle of the pumpkin.  How it starts by planting a seed, it grows into a small sprout, then gets bigger, flowers, and then into a bright orange pumpkin! Then the book talks about how some pumpkins are small, some are large, some are smooth, some are bumpy, and has pictures to go along with the words. Then the book goes even further… what do you do with a pumpkin once you get it? Make pie! And jack-o-lanterns!

I think this book does a really good job of taking a topic, teaching a lesson, but making it really interesting.  The photos in the book are superb and show things you and your little have probably seen before.  This book might be especially fun to read before you go pick your Halloween pumpkin!
