Pumkin Pies!

I just found this great post on Classroom Book of the Week.

As it is fast approaching Halloween, Pumkins are everywhere. This is a great review about a book called, 'The Perfect Pumpkin (sic) Pie'.



There is a great rhyme in there too.

FIVE LITTLE PUMPKINS SITTING ON A GATE

Five little pumpkins sitting on a gate.
The first one said, “Oh my! It’s getting late.”
The second one said, “There are witches in the air.”
The third one said, “But we don’t care.”
The fourth one said, “Let’s run, run, run.”
The fifth one said, “It’s Halloween fun.”
WOOOOO went the wind, and out went the lights.
And the five little pumpkins rolled out of sight.


and another,

“Pumpkins, pumpkins, pumpkin pie!
I must have one before I die.
It must be round and brown as toast,
Or I’ll haunt this house a hungry ghost.
It must be perfect or a ghost I’ll stay,
And haunt this house, and never, ever go away!


So, as Halloween approaches, remember the pumkins!
