I smiled when I saw there was a space to write your name inside the cover. I know from rediscovering my old childhood books that I used to do this all of the time, and I know how proud I was that I could write my name in there.
The glittery cover made the book instantly appealing to the boys, as they all reached to touch it and feel the sandpaper-like texture.
We loved the patter of the book – rhyming opposites and the variation of shorter and longer, more complex sentences on each page – coupled with shorter and closer range illustrations.
Pumpkins, Pumpkins Everywhere is a beautifully written book that will be treasured by our boys – and as Jensen’s reading has suddenly skyrocketed, he’s taken over the reading of one book each night to his baby brothers – this book has been read every single night since its arrival!
