Perfect Picture Books: Duck & Goose Find a Pumpkin

Here's an easy read for Perfect Picture Books. I'm at the Pikes Peak Writer's Conference throughout the weekend, so I'll be a bit MIA or about as "off the grid" as I can be. Enjoy your weekend. — Stacy 

For Perfect Picture Book Fridays, I've chosen Duck & Goose Find a Pumpkin
Our copy is a little worn.
Scholastic Inc., 2009, board book

Suitable for: Ages one and up

Theme/Topic: Search, Friendship, Adventure

Opening: Nice Pumpkin, Thistle. 
Yes it is.

Brief Synopsis:  When Duck and Goose see Thistle's pumpkin they decide to search for one of their own. But, where do they get one? 

Link to Resources: I found a lesson plan with duck and goose activities and crafts and coloring sheets. Parents could also discuss where pumpkins can be found? Duck & Goose have been on many adventures. Catherine Johnson posted the Duck & Goose Here Comes the Easter Bunny book on Perfect Picture Book Fridays earlier this month.

Why I chose this book: It's one of the first books Enzo and I read together (in all types of voices too). While I'm at conference this weekend, I'll be missing bed time reading.

To find more picture books and resources, please visit Susanna Leonard Hill's blog and look for the Perfect Picture Books page.
