Pumpkin Pumpkin is about a young boy, named Jamie, who plants some pumpkin seeds and watches them grow. It is a wonderful little book that describes the life cycle of a pumpkin. I would use this for kindergarten or first grade. It could go with a science lesson about pumpkins, but it could also be used in an English lesson. There is a worksheet called Jamie and his Pumpkin for kindergartners, which has them color in only the scenes that occurred in the story. For first grade, the students could write about a time they made a jack-o-lantern, or watched something grow. It is perfect for the fall.
