I absolutely love sharing ideas for stories to share with your children and these pumpkin books for kids all look fantastic!
With Autumn, Thanksgiving, Harvest Festivals and Halloween all lending themselves to pumpkin books it’s a great excuse to find a few more stories to try out.

There’s a great mixture of books in this round up with stories like Piggies In The Pumpkin Patch whose alliteration, rhyme and ‘not too seasonal’ theme make it a great read for all year round, while others like Little Boo are great for kids who really LOVE a themed book (that’s my kids by the way, it has to be Halloween books at Halloween and Christmas books all December here!)
As well as all these pumpkin book ideas you’ll find some ideas for pumpkin crafts for kids at the end of this post with some fun activities that you can try out.

My kids loved making this stained glass pumpkin suncatcher that’s great for teaching colour mixing too.
