Sixteen Runaway Pumpkins


There are multiple classroom uses here: for math: the multiplication; for language arts: the rhyming text, the descriptive words and phrases, and a discussion of the storyline… a good choice to read during the fall and through Thanksgiving.

Sixteen Runaway Pumpkins

Illustrated by Anne-Sophie Lanquetin

Can Sam catch 16 “hill-rolling, ditch-jumping, stump-bumping” runaway pumpkins? Count on a few chuckles, too, in this rhyming tale illustrated with bright and bouncy paintings in the brilliant colors of autumn.

Selected by the children’s literature committee of Bank Street College for its “Best Books of the Year” list in 2005.

Also was released as a Scholastic Book Club selection in a softcover/audio package.
