Children's Book Review: Apples and Pumpkins

Title: Apples and Pumpkins
Author: Anne Rockwell
Illustrator: Lizzy Rockwell
Type: Picture Book
My rating: 4 stars

A simple story about things that a family can do in autumn. Depicts apple picking with the family at an apple farm, pumpkin picking, and carving a jack-o-lantern. The last three pages feature trick or treating with the children dressed as: pirate, ghost, queen and a devil.

This is a short story with illustrations going across both pages, bright colors, hand drawn.

This book has a low word count and is for very young children, from toddlers through age five or perhaps even six. This is perfect for use by Preschool, Kindergarten teachers and homeschoolers when the teacher wants to read books about the autumn season. Of course it is also good for parents to read to children.

I enjoyed that the book was family focused and about a family doing things together, versus just talking about apples and pumpkins.

Note: I purchased this book; this was not a review copy. I was not paid by anyone to write this review. If you purchase this book through my blog's Amazon link I will receive a small commission.
