Patty’s Pumpkin Patch
Written and Illustrated by Teri Sloat

Review by: Jacqueline Kilmer

     Let’s look at another pumpkin patch!  This one is Patty’s Pumpkin Patch!  “Come inside my patch and see a world of life from A to Z.”  We are invited into the story on the first page and encouraged to enjoy throughout the book.  Turn the pages and see an alphabet book of many creatures found in a pumpkin patch.  The pumpkin growing process is described with a twist.  Many extra characters are involved!  They are actively participating in each page of the story.
     Each picture is colorful and creative.  Each letter of the alphabet is shown and the object beginning with that letter is insinuated into the artwork!  The verse is in rhyme and easy to read.
     The artwork was prepared with acrylics on watercolor paper with oil pastel overlay.  Pastel grounds were spread over the acrylic and oil pastel to allow for final detailing with acrylic.  And enticing details they are!
     I recommend this book for ages 2-10.  Any child can benefit from the alphabet letter recognition and the search for the objects on each page.  It is a fun story with more to do than just read.  It involves the reader in the action!  Enjoy playing in this excellent book!
