This book is by Mike Valladao, Illustrated by Larry Sippel. The book takes a child through the growing seasons of an Atlantic Giant pumpkin and introduces the basics of what it takes to grow and thrive. This book is the first in a series of Farmer Mike Awareness Books designed to help children better understand the natural world around them. Each topic features life on a farm and offers fun and interesting highlights of steps required to complete a particular project. The object of this series of books is to help children build a foundation for a lifetime of learning.
This book has 40 pages of information designed to help you grow a giant pumpkin in your own yard. Although the guide is primarily intended to help newer growers learn to produce one of nature’s most impressive fruits, it contains bits of wisdom that can help us all to improve our technique. Over 60 color pictures really do a great job in displaying important issues to watch for, and even has a suggested method to train your plants in order to obtain the maximum size pumpkin. The guide shows which insects and diseases to watch for, and has a handy page for recording notes about growing your own monster pumpkin.
