“Ready For Pumpkins” by Kate Duke Review and Giveaway!!!

Ready For Pumpkins is such an adorable book and so fitting with the season.  Reading it for the first time, I just knew I have to share it with my son’s kindergarten  class.  It is about the class guinea pig named Hercules who watches the first grade class grow plants from seeds and wants to do that too.  During summer vacation when the teacher brings him out to the country with her he gets to do that with a new friend and during that summer he learns so much.  He learns about patience and sometimes having to wait makes things sweeter, he learns about friendship and how hard it can be to say goodbye to old friends and the joy of meeting a whole class of new friends.  All in all he learns that he is a pretty lucky guinea pig.

KATE DUKE has been creating wonderful picture books for more than 25 years. Her best-loved tales often include guinea pigs or mice, like Aunt Isabel Tells a Good One, andGuinea Pig ABC. Ms. Duke lives in New Haven, Connecticut.
