Once again, the Canton Public Library will act as a collection site for the Detroit Free Press annual Gift of Reading program. Please bring new, unwrapped books suitable for children from preschool through third grade to the library between now and December 4. Reading is the best gift a child can receive.

I'm definitely in a fall mood. With the weather getting cooler, I keep thinking about fall stuff like apple cider, warm soup, and pumpkins. I'm ready to go buy some pumpkins right now, but it's still a little too early for that. In the meantime, I think I'll just read some books about them. Here are some of my favorite easy-reading titles all about pumpkins. Enjoy!
