It's the Great Pumpkin!
October 15, 2012
Well, it is that time of year again! Every store you go to, there are pumpkins out front. Pumpkins so big you can barely lift them, and pumpkins so tiny you wonder what in the world am I supposed to do with it. Then, there is the bakery section with the pumpkin donuts, cakes, rolls, and cookies. Don’t forget the pumpkin cappuccino to go with those sweets. You can even find pumpkin soup in some areas.
Sweets are one thing; pumpkin crafts are a whole other story. Painted pumpkins seem to be everywhere, as well as pumpkins with flowers planted in them. There are even stickers you can put on the pumpkin instead of carving them...the possibilities are endless.
You may be wondering what kind of carvings your kids will come up with this year. Or, what recipes you can create with the left over pumpkins. MCPL can help with all your questions. We have many options, so check out some of the selections below or browse our catalog. But hurry, these books will go fast, especially this time of year.
