We can be sure of this: It's a circle without end. It'¬?s pumpkin seeds to pumpkins To pumpkin seeds again! This treat of a picture book comes cloaked in the colors of fall. Bouncy verse and glowing photographs show a backyard pumpkin patch move through its natural cycle -- a bug'¬?s eye and a bird's high view of seeds sprouting, flowers blooming, bees buzzing, pumpkins growing . . .and then going back to earth. An author's note explains how to grow your own pumpkin.

The pumpkin seed
Makes the pumpkin plant, and the
Pumpkin plant
Makes pumpkins

Deep within each pumpkin the air is damp and cool. The walls are lined with teardrop seeds, each one a slippery jewel.

Scrape them from their orange cave. Wash away squishy mush.
Save a few to grow next spring, and have a bunch to munch.
