I once read a book while my kids were choosing books at Borders about a man who was going to lose his pumpkin farm if he didn’t come up with $100, 000 to pay off the mortgage.  To save his farm, he mailed a letter to a hundred thousand people all over the world, telling them how wonderful pumpkins were.  He told the people they cost a dollar each, and if they all sent him a dollar, he would send them each a pumpkin.  Everyone followed his instructions, and he was able to save his farm.  Though even more far-fetched than Field of Dreams, it planted an idea in my head that I have never given up:  I want to move to the country and start my own pumpkin farm.

But I’ll talk more about that another time.

Today I want to ask you all this question:

What are your favorite children’s books for FALL and HALLOWEEN?

Let’s see how many comments we can get, so we can start a little online discussion.  Won’t that be fun?

Lovely.  I knew you’d all be into it!

Plus, if any of you know the name of the book I talked about up there, please let me know.
