Pooh's Pumpkin Reviews
Rabbit gives Pooh pumpkin seeds to plant and grow his very own pumpkin. But as time passes and changes occur, Pooh worries his seeds will not grow a pumpkin!Great book to teach the life cycle of a pumpkin!
The book is great for discussing life cycles, we use picture cards to sequence the story and the life cycle of the pumpkin. We also discuss things that a plant need for survival, soil, sun and water.
I appreciate the way this children's book approaches the questions kids raise about what is growing in their gardens. Gaines makes observations about the world surrounding Pooh as well as what is appearing in and around the plant as we follow a pumpkin seed through planing, germination, vines, flowering and finally a growing ball that changes colors when it ripens. Since I love nature, I was delighted to read this to the kiddos I nanny. We talked at great length about the growth cycle of plants, and we are looking forward to spring time when we can plant our own seeds to watch, too. :o)
I categorized this as traditional literature because of how old the story of Pooh bear is. This would be a great book to read during Halloween and Thanksgiving. You could really read it during the fall at any time. The Pooh Bear stories are classics. I really liked how it showed patience. I also really liked the illustrations at the end. The colors used were very pretty and fit in with the fall theme very easily.
I liked it because I like Pooh, but I rate the picture books by what my son thinks. He thinks Pooh is the "diaper bear" because of his appearance on Huggies and wasn't interested in hearing about a bear named Poopy even if he was growing a pumpkin. It took a few tries to get through it, then he slipped it into the back-to-library-bag when I went to the kitchen.
