This is the first day of PiBoIdMo and Picture Book Month!
Since yesterday was Halloween, I decided to post about the following Picture Book:
The Bumpy Little Pumpkin
by Margery Cuyler
Illustrated by Will Hillenbrand
In a picture book the illustrations are as important as the words.
The illustrations in this book are superb!
Little Nell lived with BIG Mama,
BIG Sarah, and BIG LIzzie in a great,
BIG house in a great, BIG woods.
But, according to Nell, things do not have to be BIG to be loved.
With all the BIG pumpkins to pick from their garden, Nell picks a bumpy little pumpkin. With help from her friends, including Crow,Cardinal and Sparrow, it is made into a jack-o'-lantern!
I loved this picture book.
