What to Read Wednesday: Pumpkin Books for Kids

The Best Pumpkin Books for Kids

This blog uses affiliate links. Please read my disclosure policy.

It’s so tempting to bring home a glorious fiery pumpkin as soon as the grocery stores stock them. But with the endless summer weather, we have to use our willpower to wait a few more weeks, so they will last until the fall holidays. My kids get so excited about the fall and winter holidays, and they can hardly wait to start celebrating.

We’ve tried to grow our own and were surprised by a huge rambling vine on our compost heap last year. But, no pumpkins have ever appeared on our vines. So, it’s store-bought for us. My kids put a lot of thought into choosing the perfect specimens to bring home. They look forward to designing and carving masterpiece jack-o-lanterns and do a great deal of planning before digging in. But I like to leave a few au naturel to have around the house until time for Christmas decorations to come out.

How about some fun books to get into the fall spirit? Below are some of the best books for kids. All of these fun books are sure to get your kids excited about the fall season, and excited about reading. We enjoy rereading these books every year, no matter how big my kids get! The Let’s Read and Find Out book is a wonderful supplement to science and nature studies.

If you have any suggestions for our list, please leave them in the comments!

Happy Reading!

Bird Feeder Craft

When you have a small leftover pumpkin, try using it to make a bird feeder craft the kids will enjoy doing. Check out our bird feeder idea here! My son had lots of fun making these, and our wild bird friends loved them. They look pretty hanging in the trees, too.
