Book Talk Tuesday: Pumpkins

If you're looking for a simple little book to help generate adjectives about pumpkins then look no further!  Plumply, Dumply Pumpkin by Mary Serfozo is the story I use when generating a discussion about what pumpkins look like.  This is a very simple rhyming story but includes numerous examples of descriptive words.  

In this story a little tiger named Peter goes out in search of the "perfect" pumpkin.  

As he is searching he comes across a number of pumpkins but they just aren't exactly what he is looking for.

Then finally he spots his "perfect" pumpkin.

After finding his "perfect, plumply, dumply, pumpkin"  what will he do with it?  The story asks will he make a pumpkin pie or pumpkin pudding but the answer is no.  Peter has other plans for his pumpkin and gets to work drawing and carving because "perfect pumpkins really do make perfect jack-o-lanterns, too."

I just love it!  So cute, simple, and fun!  This story is a great way to start that discussion all about pumpkins and fits perfectly into any pumpkin unit.
