"Refreshingly, an autumn book that isn't about Halloween." --Kirkus Reviews

When farmers and pumpkin patch owners donate their pumpkins to the zoo, the animals chomp, chew, play, and give hearty hoorays for their favorite squishy squash! Grab a pumpkin and follow along as this lighthearted, lyrical zoo book for preschoolers and elementary-age kids from bestselling novelist Susan Meissner celebrates the fall season in the most entertaining way.

Here come the wagons down the streets, rumbling and tumbling with pumpkin treats! Kids will love watching the zoo animals enjoy their autumn snack in this educational, rhyming story.

With lively artwork from illustrator Pablo Pino, Pumpkin Day at the Zoo

  • is ideal for ages 4-8;
  • is recommended for classrooms and libraries focused on animal life, fall festivities, and generosity;
  • shows kids the importance of donating and repurposing excess; and
  • is the perfect gift for National Pumpkin Day, back-to-school celebrations, Halloween, or Thanksgiving.

Both humorous and educational, Pumpkin Day at the Zoo applauds all the good that comes from sharing in your community.
