Who doesn’t love the Five Little Pumpkin rhyme at Halloween time?
J-jo will sit endlessly as I chant it to him acting it out with miniature pumpkins, then he joins in the fun as we roll our pumpkins away.
We recently received books from Tiger Tales,
wonderful tickle-your-senses-with-beautiful-illustrations-and-rhythmic-rhymes books,
and Five Little Pumpkins was one of them.
I love Ben Mantle’s illustrations. I especially like how he did the “and out went the lights” page.
I also appreciated the fact that the book is a padded board book since J-jo is rough on books.
If you’re looking to add to your personal collection of Halloween books, this one is perfect for the babies and toddlers, and I know of at least one preschooler who still loves it and asks for it repeatedly!
Thank you to Tiger Tales for generously providing us with delightful books to read and review.
Look for more of our reviews on upcoming posts.
