Too Many Pumpkins
Rebecca Estelle has hated pumpkins ever since she was a girl when pumpkins were often the only food her family had. When an enormous pumpkin falls off a truck and smashes in her yard, she shovels dirt over the pieces and forgets about them. But those slimy pumpkin smithereens sprout up in autumn, and Rebecca Estelle finds a sea of pumpkins in her garden.
A heartwarming classic for more than twenty years, and a consistent favorite for Halloween, Thanksgiving, and all year round, this story shows what happens when one thrifty gardener figures out how to make other people happy with the squash she can't stomach.
Filled with colorful illustrations from a season of gardening, this is a perfect book for young gardeners, pumpkin lovers--and has a wonderful lesson about helping others that can be explored in the classroom or at home.
