Pumpkins for your punkin

The word Pumpkin traces back to the Greek word Pepon, meaning “large melon”, “cooked by the sun”. It also is listed on dictionary.com as meaning “one’s sweetheart”. Cue the heart surge.

And yes, it’s a fruit. And yes, I love the nickname Pumpkin/Punkin.

Story time is one of the best times during the day. And having good/cute/funny/happy books helps with that. And no, not every children’s book is those things. (I’m lookin’ at you, The Long Journey of Mr. Poop.)

So in honor of fall goodness and the season of the pumpkin, here are some cute books for your Punkin.


Biscuit Visit the Pumpkin Patch

I admit, it’s kinda hard for me to get passed the name Biscuit for a dog. Why couldn’t it have been Barkley? But it’s cute and an easy read, and by easy read I mean easy to make the storyline different each time you reread it.


How Many Seeds in a Pumpkin?

The show Numbers meets Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Via.



Splat the Cat and the Pumpkin-Picking Plan

Splat looks like he plays on The Roots with Jimmy Fallon. And he’s got a friend called Seymour, so obviously, cool cat status.


The Roll-Away Pumpkin

It’s a beautiful book. The illustrations are far from being a bore. And the author’s name is Junia Wonders. The Name Seal of Approval.


Ready for Pumpkins

There’s a mouse called “Herky” Hercules!


The Very Best Pumpkin

My Girl meets the first Pumpkin Spice Latte of the season feels. But maybe those are the same thing.


You Are My Little Pumpkin Pie

I love you to the moon and back, autumn style.

Let me know if you’ve read any of these books, or if you get one from reading this!

And on another note, I love this list of names to name your actual pumpkin.
