Full Text Reviews:

School Library Journal - 07/01/2020 PreS-Gr 2—In rhyming verse, readers learn about a field trip to a pumpkin patch that goes horribly wrong; on the way home, the pumpkins fall out of the storage bins on the bus. The kids are disappointed and then surprised by how the people of the town help them get their pumpkins back. Autumnal hues in the color palette support the story perfectly, showing a diverse population that is happily collectively problem-solving. The pictures are detailed enough to encourage one-on-one sharing but large enough for story hours. The text has a catchy beat, with some unusual vocabulary sprinkled in to help with language skills. This story would be an excellent choice to add to a fall unit of study or to pair with a nonfiction look at harvests and fall festivals. VERDICT An entertaining story with exciting surprises along the way, this is a strong addition to most collections.—Debbie Tanner, S D Spady Montessori Elem., FL - Copyright 2020 Publishers Weekly, Library Journal and/or School Library Journal used with permission.
