The collage-styled illustrations lead readers through the planning, planting, growing, and harvesting of a Halloween pumpkin patch. Tucked at the end of the book are 6 detailed mini-pictures and simple descriptions explaining how their pumpkin seeds grew underground. Each mini-picture labels the seed, shell, root, root hairs, stem, seed leaves and pumpkin leaves. Often children begin to explore plants in Kindergarten, and follow up with more detailed explorations in first or second grade. This rich picture book would support that learning and interest well!
