Nature Book List: October (Pumpkins!)


Happy October! At the beginning of each month I will put together a book list related to learning about nature that will be influenced by the season and natural wonders that occur during that month. This month will feature books related to pumpkins. The books make great reads both in the classroom and at home. If you’re teaching a theme related to the pumpkins, I suggest you check these out. The stories are both entertaining and informative, and are scientifically connected to the life cycle of a pumpkin. I hope you find the resources useful. Check them out from your local library, or click on the picture below the title to find out more information about the book or follow a link for purchase.
