The Ugly Pumpkin

The Ugly Pumpkin - Dave Horowitz

A holiday themed book for all ages! In a pumpkin patch, there lived an ugly pumpkin. He does not fit in with the other pumpkins on the patch. Thanksgiving comes around he finds out his true identity. 


An activity to do with older students can compare and contrast the story of The Ugly Pumpkin with The Ugly Duckling. A science lesson can be experimenting with a squash.
