Good Bight Little Pumpkin cover

Synopsis:
Sleepy little Milo, in his oversized pumpkin costume, is making the rounds at the harvest party with his friends. It’s time to go home, but he wants to enjoy every game at the fall fair before the night is over! Crunching leaves, crisp breezes, mountains of sweets—celebrate the abundance of the harvest season through this bedtime book for children. Charming illustrations and a sweet story are perfect for young hearts.
A great alternative to scary books, this fun harvest-themed book is sure to be a perennial favorite.

Review


This die-cut board book is aimed at kids ages 1-4 and is a perfect book to celebrate the season, without having to resort to any scary, or hard to explain Halloween books. Milo and his mother share all the fun of a Fall festival with young kids, and get them excited about the season. It would be a lovely book to share at bedtime, after going to a Fall festival with a young child, so they can relate their memories of games and activities to it. It will also make a good early reader for 5-6 yr olds! We highly recommend it for all kids under age 6!
