Kids Pumpkin Projects book review

Book Review

Kids' Pumpkin Projects: Planting and Harvest Fun by Deanna F. Cook, illustrated by Kate Flanagan (Williamson, 1998)

Ages 4-10

Kids love pumpkins, and Pumpkin Projects offers a cornucopia of pumpkin-related Big Learning opportunities.The book cleverly takes advantage of various properties of pumpkins - their size, shape, and quick growth - to catapult kids into math, science, gardening, cooking and craft projects.

Although much of the book deals with growing pumpkins from seed, there's plenty of harvest season delight, including advice on preserving pumpkins and saving seeds to plant next spring, carving and decorating advice, and plenty of recipes.
