The Ultimate List of Pumpkin Books for Preschoolers

Check out this list of pumpkin books for preschoolers to welcome the fall season, learn about a pumpkin’s life cycle, and celebrate the holidays!

Pumpkin Books for PreschoolersHands down, fall is my favorite season. I may not be able to see as many trees changing colors living in Los Angeles, but fall marks a new energy that lifts my spirits. And one of my favorite fall traditions is picking out pumpkins with my kids.

This is especially fun during the preschool stage. Your child starts to understand traditions, the changes of the season, and of course, Halloween.

And it’s often the first time she can participate, from picking and carving a Jack-o-lantern to scooping and washing the pumpkin seeds. She can enjoy the festivities at a pumpkin patch and even help bake (and eat!) the pumpkin pie.

One of the best ways to mark the season—and to encourage her interests—is to read pumpkin books for preschoolers.

She may have graduated from baby board books, but may not be reading longer texts yet. These pumpkin books are geared specifically for preschoolers who can’t get enough of pumpkins. The topics vary, from Halloween themed to the life cycle of a pumpkin to welcoming the fall harvest.

I’ve listed several favorite pumpkin books for preschoolers to give you a few ideas. I hope you enjoy them as much as my kids have:
