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.
