Pumpkin Countdown by Joan Holub...Review & Giveaway!

Fall is in the air here at Reviewed by Mom. We've been apple picking, visited the pumpkin patch, jumped in the leaves and pulled out the big comfy sweaters. I love this time of year. This fall I have had the pleasure of being introduced to a lovely children's book just perfect for the season, Pumpkin Countdown by Joan Holub. Here is the scoop...
In this rhyming picture book, a classroom of children goes on a field trip to the pumpkin patch, where they count everything in sight. The book is perfect for the fall season, and an extra-fun way to teach children to count backward from twenty.

Pumpkin Countdown is a delightful read.  Each page is rich with descriptions of things you would see at the pumpkin patch such as a petting zoo, tractor ride and corn maze.  The illustrations (by Jan Smith) are colorful and fun and transport the reader right into the field trip along with the children.  Each page is a lesson in counting backwards from twenty which I really appreciated.  We have many, many books on counting but this is our first that counts backward so it definitely feels a gap in that learning arena.  Pumpkin Countdown is a great addition to your fall reading list and an excellent way to introduce children to the skill of counting backward. Pick up your copy today on the Albert Whitman & Company website HERE.

I am delighted to tell you that the publisher is giving one lucky RBM reader a copy of Pumpkin Countdown.  Thanks so much to the sponsor and here is how to enter....
