Family eBook of The Day
A wonderful & whimsical autumn tale!
“Marla Little’s pumpkin is rolling away! Can she catch it before it’s gone forever? Readers both young and young at heart will delight in this lovely, whimsical tale.“ –BookBub
On a windy autumn day, Marla Little comes running down the hill, yelling, “Help! My giant pumpkin is rolling away! Onward it goes, rolling and turning, with no sign of stopping! Diddle-dee-doo! Oh, what shall I do?”
A little girl chases her giant pumpkin all over town with some help along the way. Featuring a cast of delightful characters and beautifully illustrated with memorable scenes, you’ll love reciting “Diddle-dee-doo! Oh, what shall I do?” together with your little pumpkin.
It’s perfect for teaching sequencing to preschool and kindergarten children, and it’s a fun way to introduce your little one to nostalgic characters such as the farmer, the baker, the milkman, and so on. Older preschoolers or kindergarteners may enjoy retelling the story. Try asking your little one who’s running after the pumpkin and to guess what will happen next!
There’s more: This adorable little story is a celebration of pumpkins and all vegetables during the fall harvest season. With the townsfolk dressing up as vegetables, this picture book will get kids excited about Halloween!
The book is exquisitely illustrated by award-winning Italian illustrator Daniela Volpari. Every page is a beautiful work of art, making this one of those picture books whose images will linger long after you’ve turned the page.
