This Week’s Children’s Books:

We’ve been reading all of our Halloween favorites and some new books too. Here are some books we’ve read this week.


It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown

By Charles M. Schulz

We read this book multiple times a year, even when it’s not Halloween. It wouldn’t be Halloween without it either. Our copy is a 1972 printing, but this year we picked up the beautiful, bright orange 2018 deluxe edition. Both editions are wonderful, and this is a Charles Schulz childhood favorite. It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown is all about Linus and his belief in the Great Pumpkin. He gives up trick-or-treating to wait for the Great Pumpkin on Halloween night, and just about the only person who believes he might be on to something is Sally.

“Dear Great Pumpkin, I am looking forward to your arrival on Halloween Night. Everyone tells me you are fake, but I believe in you. “ – Linus

Josie and Deja have been working together at a pumpkin patch for much of their high school years. They’re pretty good friends and enjoy each other’s company during the season, but they don’t talk much outside of work. This Halloween they’ll be saying goodbye for good as both prepare to begin their college life. Josie’s pretty depressed about it; he loves everything about the pumpkin patch, especially being the MVPPP (Most Valuable Pumpkin Patch Person). Deja seems more optimistic about it and mentions coming back for visits.

Deja’s convinced she’s going make this Halloween the best ever. Her plan is to finally get Josie hitched up with a girl that works with them. He’s been daydreaming about this girl for years, but he’s hesitant to talk to her. Deja won’t take no for an answer as she plans to make their last night at the Patch one to remember.
