Pumpkins Mini BookDLTK's Educational Ideas - Print and Assemble Books
Pumpkins Mini Book

contributed by Leanne Guenther

The mini-books are quite simple with images that should appeal to young children and simple, repetitive words that children in Preschool and Kindergarten children should be able to read themselves.

There is a version with faces and one without. 

Use our Story Sequencing Worksheets to complement the mini books (the same worksheets work for both books).



We have prepared a demonstration video about assembling your mini book.  Watch it here.

Photos aren't for this book,
but the system works the same.

No Face Templates:

One of my viewers suggested that the cute little faces on characters like the pumpkin make it more difficult to use the mini books as an educational resource.  So, I've included some "No Face" versions in case you'd like to use them instead!
