"How many seeds in a pumpkin?" Mr. Tiffin asks his class as they gather around the big, medium, and small pumpkins on his desk. Robert, the biggest kid, guesses that the largest one has a million seeds; Elinor, sounding like she knows what she's talking about, guesses the medium one has 500 seeds; and Anna, who likes even numbers better than odd ones, guesses that the little one has 22. Charlie, the smallest boy in the class, doesn't have a guess. Counting pumpkin seeds is messy business, but once the slimy job is done, to everyone's surprise, the smallest pumpkin has the most seeds! As Charlie happily exclaims, "Small things have a lot going on inside of them." Hardcover, 40 pages.

Review 1 for How Many Seeds in a Pumpkin?
Date:October 24, 2008
Although a bit pricey, this is a great fall book for children! First, we bought a small pumpkin and polled our family on the # of seeds. Then, we read our book. We, like the children in the book, underestimated the small pumpkin b/c of it's size. Afterwards, we cut our pumpkin open and counted the seeds after they dried. It was a fun fall activity for our children!!! We also got some instructions to make roasted pumpkin seeds off of the internet for everyone to enjoy!
