9 Picture Books about Pumpkins – and one Turnip!
We absolutely love Halloween, and our seasonal Halloween picture books! We’ve added a few more to our collection since I last made a video, so I thought it was time to do an update. But as our collection is quite big now, I’ve split the books in to a three part mini series, starting with all our books about pumpkins – and one turnip! Why a turnip, I hear you ask? Long time readers of this blog may remember what turnips have to do with Halloween, the rest of you will need to watch the video to find out!
If you want to look up any of the books from the video, here are the details:
- Pick a Pumpkin, by Patricia Toht & Jarvis
- Splat the Cat and the Pumpkin-Picking Plan, by Rob Scotton
- Stumpkin, by Lucy Ruth Cummins
- The Last Pumpkin: A Tale of Bravery, by John Knutson & Luke Flowers
- Big Pumpkin, by Erica Silverman & S. D. Schindler
- The Ugly Pumpkin, by Dave Horowitz
- The Roll-Away Pumpkin, by Junia Wonders & Daniela Volpari
- Pumpkin Soup, by Helen Cooper
- Tumshie: The Forgotten Halloween Turnip Lantern, by Mark Mechan
And the Etsy shop I mentioned in the video, where I bought my turnip brooch and earrings, is Charlie Dear (not a promotion, just an independent shop I love).
