    A boy carves a pumpkin that becomes a friend Well, it starts to smell bad and the boy has to set it out in the garden where he watches it decompose Seasons change and when the snow melts, not much is left of the pumpkin He does notice a new green shoot and he knows it s a new pumpkin vine He nourishes this vine and watches it grow until he can carve his new pumpkin.This is a great story for the changing seasons and the circle of life The artwork is nice, but not special The molded pumpkin A boy carves a pumpkin that becomes a friend Well, it starts to smell bad and the boy has to set it out in the garden where he watches it decompose Seasons change and when the snow melts, not much is left of the pumpkin He does notice a new green shoot and he knows it s a new pumpkin vine He nourishes this vine and watches it grow until he can carve his new pumpkin.This is a great story for the changing seasons and the circle of life The artwork is nice, but not special The molded pumpkin picture was quite gross.My little nephew is not a patient person He expects things in the moment he is in He s hungry, he must eat now He is thirsty and there is a national emergency and he is screaming for water, now Waiting for something is not in his nature right now He watches Netflix and when he does see a commercial on Youtube, it drives him crazy All this to say, that for a boy who lives in the moment, looking at something that takes a year to complete is boring for him and he told me so I know a pumpkin vine grows pumpkins , he said, why do we have to watch it in the story This story stinks, he said and slammed it with 1 star It frustrated him and he enjoys pumpkins We differ in our opinion of this

    More than a Halloween story, this is really the circle of life pumpkin style When the little boy s beloved jack o lantern starts to get moldy, he has to put it out in the dead garden He watches as, over time, it decomposes Yeah, it s a little gross But, come spring, a tiny shoot of green appears and it grows into a pumpkin plant, eventually giving him many years of pumpkins It s not an especially memorable story but it s a good one for children starting to ask about the life cycle or h More than a Halloween story, this is really the circle of life pumpkin style When the little boy s beloved jack o lantern starts to get moldy, he has to put it out in the dead garden He watches as, over time, it decomposes Yeah, it s a little gross But, come spring, a tiny shoot of green appears and it grows into a pumpkin plant, eventually giving him many years of pumpkins It s not an especially memorable story but it s a good one for children starting to ask about the life cycle or having trouble parting with their own pumpkins
