Making a Jack-o’-lantern, Step by Step by J. Angelique Johnson

Making a Jack-o-LanternYou just got home from the pumpkin patch and you are your preschooler or young elementary school-aged child are ready to dive in and make something great out of the big, orange blank canvas. If you can’t wait to show your child how to create a Jack-o’-Lantern, but you are not quite sure how to approach this project with such a young child, this title is perfect! In just 32 pages, you will go from a simple gourd to creating a great Halloween decoration for your home.

Each page has large photo illustrations that share a step in creating your Jack-o’-Lantern. The book features a page of tools to have around while you carve your pumpkin, including an ice cream scoop to scoop out the pumpkin seeds and pumpkin “guts.” The text is large and clear so most beginning readers will be able to read the book with an adult. And the order of the story is carefully laid out to help young readers who are developing sequencing skills. This title is great for kids interested in learning how to carve a Jack-o’-Lantern or adults looking for a little extra guidance as they take on this fun, seasonal project.
