Every fall, when “red and yellow leaves are on the trees,” a little girl and her family go to Comstock Farm to picks apples and pumpkins. Mr. Comstock gives them a bushel basket, and the little girl and her parents walk through the apple orchard picking apples as they go.

When the bushel basket is full, the little girl and her parents go to the pumpkin field. Which of the pumpkins will make the perfect Halloween Jack - o’- lantern?

With a simple text and charming illustrations, this is a perfect picture book to share with young children in the fall.
