Pumpkin Day, Pumpkin NightUnknown - 1999
And so begins this timeless story of a treasured childhood tradition. Jack-o-lantern faces are drawn on paper in anticipation. Baskets of apples fill the air with the crisp, sweet smell of fall at the farmers' market. There a child finds a pumpkin that's not too big and not too small. Soon it's carved (with mother's help, of course), and set outside to glow in the starry night.
Written by Anne Rockwell, one of the most beloved names in books for preschoolers, and illustrated by Megan Halsey, whose delightfully uncluttered paper sculptures speak clearly to young children, Pumpkin Day, Pumpkin Night is a friendly toast to a child's sense of accomplishment and the joy of a special day shared between parent and child.
Pumpkin Day, Pumpkin Night is the second collaboration by Anne Rockwell and Megan Halsey, the creative team behind One Bean , an American Bookseller "Pick of the List."
