This book tells the story of a pumpkin fair or pumpkin fest. The rhyming text describes about all the events at the fair- -the pumpkin band, pumpkin bowling, and pumpkin meals. The book is quite fun, but some kids may be unnerved by the broken pumpkins at the pumpkin basketball hoop (and some parents may not like the pumpkin stew being termed gooey and not edible). The rhymes and easy to read font will make this book a delight for beginning readers. The book contains about 550 words.

As a grower of giant pumpkins, I take exception to the professional review which dings this book for not having enough "bite" and (heavens!) not even mentioning Halloween. Pumpkins are fun and so is this book. There is something inherently charming about a small town pumpkin festival, and this one has a distinctly New England look to it that reminds me of when we used to live in New Hampshire. This celebration of a simple fruit, with fun for your pre-school and early grade school children is fun to read aloud, without succombing to the modern cultural prerequisite for a witch with a wart on nose. The writing does get a bit sing-song in places, but quite tolerable to my adult ear overall. Enjoy some good clean autumn fun and read this to your kids. God bless!

Wonderful for Emergent Readers! Aug. 8 2010

My granddaughter wanted books about fairs and the library suggested this one with several others. Pumpkin Fair is her favorite and we read it everyday she is with me. We even rechecked it from the library. I am now ordering a copy for her. Her mom was so amazed when Kaylee "read" the book to me on a trip. Great Book!
Wonderful Book for Young Readers Jan. 10 2014

Great book that takes place in an idyllic little town during its Pumpkin Fair. The main character is endearing and the rhyme scheme is great. I hate kids books where you have to fudge the words to fit meter. This book flows along smoothly, so I get to enjoy it right along with my kids, who love it.

I origninally borrowed this book from the library for my son. I loved it so much, I ordered from Amazon to have a copy for my house.
The story and writing are simple enough for a preschooler to understand the humor.
This is one of the sweetest books. The little girl is is darling and innocent. The book makes me want to have my own Pumpkin Fair.
