"Pumpkin Patch Blessings" by Kim Washburn, Jacqueline East

Autumn is such a pleasant time for me.  I love to admire the fall foliage, get our my cozy sweaters, tour pumpkin patches, and eat pumpkin-flavored food.  Well, all these good feelings have been swaddled up into a cute little children's book!  Two children--one boy and one girl--explore the blessings of fall.  With birdies, bunnies, lady bugs, and other natural friends, they truly have a blast.  The kids eat pumpkin pie and corn-on-the-cob.  They ride a horse-drawn hay wagon.  They even pick their own pumpkins.  Throughout the hard-covered, full-cover story, the text is a nice sized font.  With simple rhymes of a few lines per page, this book is suitable for pre-k through grammar school children.  Also, while the book has blessings in the title, there are no religious undertones in the book.
