Did you miss our pumpkin storytime this week? Don't worry, here's what you missed, plus a few more suggestions for a squash storytime of your own. It can be hard to find pumpkin stories that aren't focused on Halloween, but most of these stories manage to incorporate pumpkins without the holiday.
Try this rhyme at home:
Five little pumpkins sitting on a gate.
The first one says, "oh my, it's getting late!"
The second one says, "there is frost in the air."
The third one says, "but we don't care!"
The fourth one says, "let's run and run and run."
The fifth one says, "are you ready for some fun?"
Then woooooo went the wind and OUT (with a clap) went the lights,
And the five little pumpkins rolled out of sight.
