Maezie’s Pumpkin Patch is a charming true story that both entertains and teaches. It is a story that touches on the issues of how we treat one another, what we value in our lives, and how compassion and working together win out over one bad deed. These are important themes that, as an elementary school librarian, I love to share. Students will be able to easily relate to these themes in this beautifully written and illustrated human story.
There’s something for every child in the story, and it all leads to lively discussions! Who would hurt Maezie’s pumpkins? Did the dog and the squirrel really get in the fire truck? What is your favorite kind of pumpkin? Is Maezie still growing her pumpkins? The children really care about what has happened to Maezie, the pumpkins, and the animals. Add the informational section about Mazie’s favorite pumpkins and the step-by-step directions on how to grow pumpkins, and you have the perfect combination of story and facts to entertain and teach an elementary school audience, either in the library or in the classroom. The children and I loved it! - Cathy Andrews, Librarian, Our Lady Queen of Angels School
Maezie's Pumpkin Patch is a poignant story first of heartbreak, then of love and support, gracefully told and sure to captivate young readers. The illustrations are lively and colorful and just right for this story of renewal. And how nice to have Maezie's pumpkin growing tips at the end of the book. - Martha Tolles, author of the Katie/Darci series
