With the trees sporting their Fall colors and a chill in the air, it is time to head to Comstock Farm to pick apples and select some pumpkins. First, mom and dad fill a basket with fresh, ripe, red apples. Then it is off to the pumpkin patch where the youngest member of the family gets to select a nice, orange pumpkin.

When the family arrives back at their house the jack-o'-lantern carving begins. Once the scary face is carved, a candle is placed inside the pumpkin, because Halloween night is just around the corner when the neighborhood children go trick-or-treating.

This seasonal board book captures the sights of autumn and, for any family who likes to go out to the farm to find a pumpkin, this offers a nice memento of the yearly tradition.

The illustrations are top notch and are worth the price of this celebratory picture book.
