The Bumpy Little Pumpkin, written by Margery Cuyler and illustrated by Will Hillenbrand is a great children’s book. This is our second Halloween season with this book and we really enjoy it! I read it to Haley last year when she was just learning to read and now she is able to read it to us this year. When I took this book out of the closet along with all the other Halloween décor, etc., Haley recognized it right away and was excited to read it again. So, I guess you could say that this book is a Halloween tradition at our house.
Little Nell has found the perfect pumpkin for Halloween. It’s bumpy and little and lumpy, and just right. Then, her bossy sisters, BIG Sarah and Big Lizzie, tell her it’s too small and ugly to make a jack-o-lantern. But with a little help from her friends Reindeer, Harem and Bear Cub, Little Nell shows them all that big ideas sometimes come in small packages – bumps and all. Joyous and uplifting, Little Nell’s tale glows with the warmth of a jack-o-latern’s grin.
