Belles Book Corner Octobers Theme Pumpkins

Welcome to the first month of my brand new series inspired by the Beauty and the Beast character, Belle, called Belle’s Book Corner. Once upon a time in a land that was faraway there lived a castle that was full of books. A woman who lived there, she called herself the Librarian, had cast a spell on the castle. All who entered this magical castle will watch their imaginations soar farther than ever before! This enchanted castle is where Belle’s Book Corner will meet the first of every month. What is the name and location of this enchanted castle you ask? Why your local library of course!

I have tried since their birth to instill a love for books in both of my children. Just as you will see Belle wandering about her daily tasks while reading a book. That this is how most days you will find Beck and Elizabeth going through their days. I firmly believe that books can open a brand new magical world for all of those young and old readers.

This month we are traveling through our magic mirror to visit our local library to find books all about the theme of pumpkins! October tends to mean a trip to a pumpkin patch, carving our Jack-O-Lanterns, and just plain magical fun as we all await “The Great Pumpkin”. Or is it just our family that waits for the Great Pumpkin to arrive every year? While visiting our local library children’s section recently we found these wonderful pumpkin themed storybooks that we wanted to share with all of you:

  • This is such a fun idea for a series! I love Halloween too–the cutesy, fun kind, of course! I'm pinning this to my (CarlaINHouston) Educational Resources board–thanks so much for sharing!!

  • We love Spookly the Square Pumpkin! We have a local Pumpkin Patch that centers the theme around Spookly! They show the movie, give all the kids a book, and they have Spookly for photo opps 🙂 So fun! We can't wait to go in a few weeks!

    • That sounds like so much fun Victoria!! It just wouldn't be Halloween in our home without Spookley 🙂

  • Love this idea – and the graphics you created are lovely!

  • I love your idea for series. My 6 year old daughter is also a super reader, but she is now a lot more interested in longer books. Do you have any ideas for pumpkin focused chapter books? Thanks for sharing your beautiful work with Afterschool!

    • Thank you Natalie! I can't say that I have seen too many pumpkin themed chapter books at the library or book store. I do own one that is older called The Berenstain Bear Scouts and the Humongous Pumpkin which is a great chapter book and perfect in my opinion for children in grades 2 – 4. Here is a link to the storybook on Amazon:
