Pumpkins! Who can resist the sight of big, round, orange pumpkins ripening in a field? Everyone knows the sight of kids picking theirs in the field or the store, then carving out funny faces, smiles, or scary frowns to illuminate Halloween doorsteps. In this book, pumpkins aren't just a fruit, they're a symbol, a scent, a flavor of the entire season.
Celebrate the flavor of fall on every page of this beautifully photographed picture book. Follow along as National Geographic takes you from seed to sprout, pumpkin to pie.
