Here is an adorable picture book for curious kids, which
explores skip counting and estimation in a fun pumpkin-themed
classroom experiment. "How many seeds are in a pumpkin?" Mr. Tiffin
asks his class as they gather around the big, medium, and small
pumpkins on his desk. Robert, the biggest kid, guesses that the
largest one has a million seeds; Elinor, sounding like she knows
what she's talking about, guesses the medium one has 500 seeds; and
Anna, who likes even numbers better than odd ones, guesses that the
little one has 22. Charlie, the smallest boy in the class, doesn't
have a guess. Counting pumpkin seeds is messy business, but once
the slimy job is done, to everyone's surprise, the smallest pumpkin
has the most seeds As Charlie happily exclaims, "Small things have
a lot going on inside of them." This book makes a wonderful
read-aloud companion to any math or science curriculum, and it's a
fun way to reinforce counting skills at home.
