Juliet’s Corner: Seed, Sprout, Pumpkin, Pie by Jill Esbaum

It’s Saturday and Juliet was up for doing Juliet’s Corner! She’s feeling much better thank goodness.

This was another book from the app Epic! Epic is the leading digital library for kids offering unlimited access to 35000 of the best children’s books of all time. It even gives me weekly progress reports on how much Juliet has read and which books she’s read.

This week Juliet has chosen:

Seed, Sprout, Pumpkin, Pie by Jill Esbaum


Pumpkins! Who can resist the sight of big, round, orange pumpkins ripening in a field? Children piling off school buses to pick one out. Carving out funny faces, smiles, or scary frowns to illuminate Halloween doorsteps. Making room for that last piece of pumpkin pie after a delicious Thanksgiving feast. 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. Envelope yourself, your family, or your class in the season by reading and learning all about pumpkins.

  1. Looks like a lot of fun, she’s adorable! So has Juliet picked out her costume(s) yet? I’m dressing up as an alien, as we’re having friends over for dinner this weekend. We usually dress-up for our granddaughters birthday but we’re going bowling this year to celebrate. I think I might wear my costume to the libraries Halloween party, as I’m volunteering for that. Thanks for sharing the pictures.
