A very timely book is called "Pumpkin Circle" by George Levenson and Shmuel Thaler. It is recommended for ages 4-8. It is about the pumpkin's circle of life - from a seed - the growing cycle- and back to the importance of seeds again. It is a wonderful, colourful, and interesting subject that is educational and interesting for kids at this time of year. Soon an avalanche of pumpkins will be in grocery stores and markets and our kids will know their story. Check it out today.
