Fall/Halloween book review: It's Pumpkin Day, Mouse!

We were delighted to receive an adorable board book by Laura Numeroff for review recently (thank you, HarperCollins!). Ms. Numeroff is the author of the wildly successful If You Give a Mouse ... series, so I expected that we would enjoy it.  It did not disappoint.

Mouse has seven pumpkins to decorate, which he does, except for the one snatched up by dog and playfully decorated to be "scary." This is not a long story, but it is great for the 2 and 3 year-old crowd as a fun introduction to pumpkin-decorating.

My 22-month old loves modeling the facial expressions on the pumpkins:

We have a backlog of books to review, so expect some catch-up posting this week! If I'm ever fully caught up, maybe I'll fill you in on how the infant bibliophile spent a good part of his summer in a body cast...but that's a story for another day. For now, we have a few pumpkin faces to imitate.

Disclosure: we received a free copy of this book in order to review it. If you click on any of the links in this post and purchase anything, we may earn a commission through our affiliate relationship with amazon.com.
