The story of Spookley the Square Pumpkin is new to me. I haven’t heard of it before this year. One of preschool girls brought us a copy of the book. This book is perfect for fall or Halloween and invites a coordinating craft.
As you might have guessed by now, Spookley is different from the rest of the pumpkins because he’s square. At first he feels badly about this because he doesn’t have fun rolling around like the other pumpkins and they tease him because of this. So an excellent opportunity to discuss differences and teasing.
Then when a storm comes up, Spookley proves useful and helpful to the other pumpkins and the farmer because he’s square. It’s a very cute story.
To go along with the book, we made square collage pumpkins.
