This literature unit is based on the book, Too Many Pumpkins by Linda White and focuses on reading comprehension skills such as making predictions, sequencing events, making connections, and inferring character feelings. It also invites children to practice writing about their favorite food made with pumpkin and their opinion on whether carving pumpkins or pumpkin pie is better. There is an optional extension comparing and contrasting Too Many Pumpkins with the book Pumpkin Town! by Katie McKy.
The book Too Many Pumpkins by Linda White is the story of a woman who hates pumpkins because when she was a little girl, it was the only food they had. One fall day, a huge pumpkin falls off a truck and smashes in her front yard. Next fall, she finds that her yard has been taken over by pumpkins! Instead of letting the pumpkins go to waste, she finds a way to use them to bring joy to her community.
