It's Pumpkin Time!

Zoe Hall. Scholastic, $14.95 (1pp) ISBN 978-0-590-47833-5

In this exuberant celebration of a Halloween icon, a brother and sister begin early preparations for their favorite holiday-in the garden. Painted paper collages brightly illustrate progress in the pumpkin patch from the children's seed-planting, watering, and weeding to the pumpkin's green vining, yellow flowering and orange fruiting. The king of squash can provide a rich introduction to kinder-gardening; and this book-with accurate information contained in a minimal text-yields a bumper crop of entertainment and basic know-how. Ages 3-7. (Sept.)
