    Cute! Tells of an elderly lady who lived through the Great Depression when all her family had to eat were pumpkins and she thus grew up despising pumpkins. The majority of the story focuses on how a pumpkin patch ended up sprouting in her front yard and she kept trying to ignore it but...

    This is a terrific picture book with wonderful illustrations and a touching story. The story is about an old woman named Rebecca Estelle who had been so poor as a child that for one entire month all she?d had to eat was pumpkins, and now she avoids them at all costs until? She?...

    I was drawn to this one because of the illustrations by Megan Lloyd. She illustrated one of my all-time favorite read-aloud books at Halloweeen, The Little Old Lady Who Was Not Afraid of Anything by Linda Williams. So of course I wanted to read this one as well. This isn't the same as ...

    My library finally got in a copy of Too Many Pumpkins. This is another winner with my daughter who just adores pumpkins after learning about them this past Halloween. A wonderful read aloud story! This story is about a little old lady named Rebecca Estelle who ate way too many pumpkins...

    In the story Too Many Pumpkins by Linda White Rebecca grew up eating so much pumpkin that she never wanted to even see pumpkins again in her life. One year by accident a pumpkin drops off a truck, the seeds plant themselves and a whole pumpkin patch grows in her yard. Being frugal s...

    We love this book in our family. We've had it since before my son was born (he's now 5). My daughter is 8, and every fall we take this one out and read in dozens of times. It's a timeless story with an ending so satisfying that we always sigh after we finish it. ...

    This has been a "yearly" favorite in our house. It is a great story on the life cycle of a pumpkin with the added benefit of teaching generosity. ...

    Too long of a story by todays word count standards for picture books but perfect none the less. This story has heart and humor and great ideas of what to do when you have too much of a good thing. Written by Linda White, illustrated by Megan Lloyd and published by Holiday House....

    During this time of year, it seems that there are pumpkin flavored items everywhere you look: coffee, cereal, pastries, and even pumpkin-scented hand soap. Rebecca Estelle had more than her share of pumpkins when she was young. Her family was poor, and all they had to eat was pumpkin. ...

    Summary: Rebecca Estelle hated pumpkins. When she was a young girl, times were tough and all her family ate were things made out of pumpkins. After a mishap Rebecca ended up with a yard full of pumpkins. Now Rebecca had to figure out how to get rid of all of them. Evaluation: Th...

    Summary: Rebecca Estelle hates pumpkins. "What's not to like?" you may be thinking. Certainly, pumpkins are benign, as far as gourds go, and they make for delicious pies. But if you were forced to eat only pumpkins (baked, steamed, boiled, stewed, mashed, and rotten), you might agree w...

    You know those books where you hesitate to describe what it's about because your description can't possibly hook someone and yet you feel compelled to try because you love the book so much and feel certain they don't know it and are missing out? This is one of those books. The stor...

    Too Many Pumpkins by Linda White was one of my wishlist books, and a rare picture book to have made it on the list. I typically only add longer books to the list. The how and why of this book being on the list is beyond my memory, but I'm glad it was. The book opens with Rebecca Est...

    Too many pumpkins is a picture book for children ages 5-8 years old. It hasn't received any awards. The main character disliked pumpkins because as a child she ate them all the time. A pumpkin truck drives by her house and all the pumpkins spill out on to her yard and she ignores them....

    My kid checked this book out from the school library. I read it to her. Her dad read it to her. We both read it to her again. And again. For a week. She lost it in her bedroom, until she was threatened with having to pay to replace, then it magically appeared from under her bed. We rea...

    Rebecca Estelle hated pumpkins so she did not plant them in her garden, until one day a truck went by and drop the pumpkins. Seasons past and the pumpkins grew and she hated them and plucked them out, not realizing they are there. The pumpkins grew, so she had no choice but to harvest ...

    This book was very wordy. I usually flip a couple pages in the library before checking them out, but either I didn't for this book, or I happened to only see the few pages that had less words. It was a bit long for my 13 month old to sit through, but sometimes I like the longer books a...

    Too Many Pumpkins is about a woman who does not like pumpkins. When she was growing up, she had to eat a lot of pumpkin dishes when her family was having financial troubles, and she grew sick of it. One day, a pumpkin truck was passing by her house and dropped a huge pumpkin right in h...

    Rating: 5.0 A wonderful read for the fall holiday season. In my opinion, this book is about taking advantage and cherishing those sentimental customs as well as sharing them with others by adding your own twist to traditional memories. Rebecca Estelle detests pumpkins because growi...

    This is a lovely story about a woman who turns a smooshed pumpkin into a community celebration. There are several nice illustrations that garner "Oooohs" as you turn the page. Children love to see how Rebecca Estelle's attitude towards pumpkins changes and they can have good discussion...

    Fun Halloween/Fall themed story to help teach us a good lesson - things that we might really not like or want around may help us see things differently and bring joy to us. The illustrations were well done and very detailed. The text seemed a bit long and could have been written more s...

    Lovely illustrations, cute story. Don't really like the trailing sentences on each page since it makes you want to turn the page for the rest of the story, but then you can't pause and examine the illustrations longer without losing your place. ...

    Wonderful. Heavy text for a picture book, but makes a great read aloud. The best part of the book is that every other page or so ends with "until..." which makes it excellent for inference skills. Also fantastic for problem solving and attitude adjustment. ...

    December 2017 - this one was recommended as a Jensen family favorite, and it didn't disappoint. Ben has chosen it over and over, and often listens to the CD at bedtime. I love the illustrations, and it's a fun story with a nice message. ...

    We love this book in our family. We've had it since before my son was born (he's now 5). My daughter is 8, and every fall we take this one out and read in dozens of times. It's a timeless story with an ending so satisfying that we always sigh after we finish it. ...

    This has been a "yearly" favorite in our house. It is a great story on the life cycle of a pumpkin with the added benefit of teaching generosity. ...

    Too long of a story by todays word count standards for picture books but perfect none the less. This story has heart and humor and great ideas of what to do when you have too much of a good thing. Written by Linda White, illustrated by Megan Lloyd and published by Holiday House....

    During this time of year, it seems that there are pumpkin flavored items everywhere you look: coffee, cereal, pastries, and even pumpkin-scented hand soap. Rebecca Estelle had more than her share of pumpkins when she was young. Her family was poor, and all they had to eat was pumpkin. ...

    Summary: Rebecca Estelle hated pumpkins. When she was a young girl, times were tough and all her family ate were things made out of pumpkins. After a mishap Rebecca ended up with a yard full of pumpkins. Now Rebecca had to figure out how to get rid of all of them. Evaluation: Th...

    Summary: Rebecca Estelle hates pumpkins. "What's not to like?" you may be thinking. Certainly, pumpkins are benign, as far as gourds go, and they make for delicious pies. But if you were forced to eat only pumpkins (baked, steamed, boiled, stewed, mashed, and rotten), you might agree w...

    Too Many Pumpkins by Linda White was one of my wishlist books, and a rare picture book to have made it on the list. I typically only add longer books to the list. The how and why of this book being on the list is beyond my memory, but I'm glad it was. The book opens with Rebecca Est...

    Too many pumpkins is a picture book for children ages 5-8 years old. It hasn't received any awards. The main character disliked pumpkins because as a child she ate them all the time. A pumpkin truck drives by her house and all the pumpkins spill out on to her yard and she ignores them....

    Old cat lady has baggage about the Great Depression, turns seemingly unplanned tragedy into a spectacular evening. But I'm not buying her story. (view spoiler)[Sure, let me cover these seeds with dirt. She's not a novice farmer, she's certainly experienced enough to know exactly what s...

    My kid checked this book out from the school library. I read it to her. Her dad read it to her. We both read it to her again. And again. For a week. She lost it in her bedroom, until she was threatened with having to pay to replace, then it magically appeared from under her bed. We rea...

    This book was very wordy. I usually flip a couple pages in the library before checking them out, but either I didn't for this book, or I happened to only see the few pages that had less words. It was a bit long for my 13 month old to sit through, but sometimes I like the longer books a...

    Rating: 5.0 A wonderful read for the fall holiday season. In my opinion, this book is about taking advantage and cherishing those sentimental customs as well as sharing them with others by adding your own twist to traditional memories. Rebecca Estelle detests pumpkins because growi...

    This is a lovely story about a woman who turns a smooshed pumpkin into a community celebration. There are several nice illustrations that garner "Oooohs" as you turn the page. Children love to see how Rebecca Estelle's attitude towards pumpkins changes and they can have good discussion...

    Fun Halloween/Fall themed story to help teach us a good lesson - things that we might really not like or want around may help us see things differently and bring joy to us. The illustrations were well done and very detailed. The text seemed a bit long and could have been written more s...
