PICTURE BOOK REVIEW, BY IRENE ROTH

Posted on: July 13, 2010

           Pick a Pumkin, Mrs. Millie!
           Judy Cox
           Illustrated by: Joe Mathieu
           Marshall Cavendish Publishing, 2009
           Ages 3-6
          
           Readers of this book will be kept on their toes.
           This book is full of vividly illustrated yellow and
           orange pictures. It truly will give the reader an
           autumnal feel and they will be transported to a class
           hilarious trip like no other that I have seen for a
           long time.
          
           The story is about a kindergarten teacher, Mrs.
           Millie, who takes her kindergarteners on a trip to a
           local farm to pick pumpkins for their harvest party.
           The class has fun guessing the meanings of their
           favourite teacher’s nonsense words. They go on a
           dragon (wagon) ride, see a harecrow (scarcrow),
           search for orange pumas (pumkins), pet the boats
           (goats), and drink apple spider (cider).
          
           The kids who I read this book thought it was
           really funny. They were laughing almost hysterically
           a few times. It was heartwarming to see that and
           for me, as a children’s writer, this is the mark of a
           GREAT picture book.
