The Reading Nook is a series of posts that feature my kids’ favorite books! These are the books my kids love. They are not intended to be full reviews. Instead, they give my general impressions and my kids’ reactions so you can decide if your little one would like it too. This post likely contain affiliate links.
I’ve already told you how my kids love If You Give a Mouse a Cookie and If You Give a Pig a Pancake written by Laura Numeroff and illustrated by Felicia Bond, so it isn’t a huge surprise that they love It’s Pumpkin Day, Mouse! by the same author and illustrator.
It’s Pumpkin Day Mouse! is a short book about the lovable Mouse’s pumpkin painting fun. He paints pumpkin faces with different emotions and Dog (from If You Give a Dog a Donut) shows up too. As always, the illustrations are attractive, and the animals are full of toddler comedy.
We bought this book last Halloween when Drake still called pumpkins “hogums” and knew only a few words, but after reading this book a few times, he introduced some feeling words into his vocabulary, which we were very excited about! He adores this book, and we leave it out all year round because of that. It’s a great book to start your Halloween library.

Welcome to the family!
We are a laid back, fun, family of four living on a dime in 900 square feet. Life might not be perfect, but every moment of every day, it is beautiful.
