PreS-Gr 1-When Katie's first-grade class goes on a field trip to the pumpkin patch, she is convinced that she has found the perfect pumpkin until her classmates tease her about its tiny size. However, her father suggests that they make a pie, and the pumpkin is just the right size. Katie takes the dessert to school to share with the other children, who find it "perfect." The easy text in large type, with no more than two sentences per page, and the cheerful, colorful cartoon art will appeal to beginning readers.-Doris Losey, Tampa-Hillsborough County Public Library, Tampa, FL Copyright 2003 School Library Journal, LLC Used with permission.
