Little goblins galore at Storytime

The Oct. 13 theme for Storytime at the Van Zandt County Library was fall pumpkins.  Ms. Rhonda read “Tuttle’s Shell” by Salvatore Murdocca, about a turtle that has lost his shell and finds a pumpkin as a replacement.

Next was “Big Pumpkin” by Erica Silverman, about a witch that wanted some pumpkin pie but the pumpkin that she grew was so large that she couldn’t get it off the vine.  It takes a ghost, a vampire, a mummy and a bat to get the pumpkin off the vine.  The witch discovers that cooperation works best. 

The children each made a paper plate pumpkin to take home.
