How have I never seen this book before? This is perhaps one of the sweetest, funniest, and, at the same time, inspirational books for children we now own.

I took the risk of ordering it based solely on the Amazon reviews, and I'm so glad I did.

The combinations of beautiful illustrations with a wonderful story and equally beautiful (and at times humorous writing) is engaging for both my preschooler and myself. This is not a book where I will groan when she asks to read it again.

The story begins with "Once upon a time there was a field..." and while the story certainly has the beauty of a fairytale, it isn't magic that saves the day but hard work, intuition, and creativity.

When the man sees the beautiful field his house overlooks is "for sale" and envisions bulldozers and house and street lights he is so upset, "the man cried."

He sells everything he owns (except for his stove, bed, and bathtub) but he still doesn't have enough money. But, with the fields help, he decides to grow pumpkins.

When the kings and congresses don't understand why the people might need pumpkins, he hand writes instructions for each and every pumpkin in every language on what to use pumpkins for.

With the money earned, he purchases the field and replaces the furniture he sold. But he doesn't replace the paintings because he has the field to look at. And he doesn't replace his watch because he has the sun and stars.

*spoiler*

And this is the ending: "The man might have planted more pumpkins. He had kept one back for seeds. Pumpkins would make him rich.
But he had everything he needed.
So he decided to give the seeds away.
Because somewhere, someone might love another field pumpkins could save."

What a powerful message about saving, coming up with creative solutions, caring for the earth, plant cycles, being present in the moment, being grateful, and putting more important things above "becoming rich."

WHY is this exquisite gem OOP??? i am a special education assistant who first heard this read (and viewed) by a classroom teacher. everyone was spellbound, starting with me. only available used? this is one of those treasures that should help form the core of our values as individuals, human beings, denizens of the planet! search for it, buy it, love it - and hope that some publisher comes to their senses and re-releases this beauty.

My son's (4 1/2) current enthrallment is pumpkins--he loves the book Pumpkin Day, Pumpkin Night. So when we found this book at the library the other day he was happy to sit and read it. For some reason we didn't check it out and had to go back the next day to get it (and I've since purchased it here). The subtle absurdities and lovely turns of phrase make this a wonderful book--subversive on the order of Good Dog Carl--and the illustrations are lovely. We love reading this together so much that he's memorized the words and loves to talk about walking in the field amoung the young hills that grow up to be mountains. Highly recommended.
Sorryyy
I have read this book to my class each year. My book is so old, it has yellowed. Now that I'm retired I read it to any class I substitute teach in the fall.
My grandchildren are now old enough to understand the book so I bought this book for them. I want them to enjoy the story and hopefully get the meaning. I know that a lot of it is fantasy, but the meaning is important and the fantasy hooks the listeners.

Man sells most of what he has to buy a field, grow punkins on it, sell pumpkins to everyone in the world, uses the income to fully pay off field purchase and re-buy some of the stuff he sold. Ends with him watching field out window. Not a book that I love nor is it one that I hate. It just is what it is.

Pumpkins by Mary Lyn Ray is a gentle story, sweetly written and beautifully illustrated. Highly recommended for people of ALL ages.

This story has been very special to our family. I first checked it out from the library, and I loved it so much I checked it out several more times. Our family, like this book, had a dream of having a field - for Christmas Tree farm. We actually became inspired from this book and planted acres and acres of pumpkins. We didn't know how we would sell them- we just planted and prayed, and people came from all over to buy our pumpkins wholesale and we also set up a roadside sale! Kind of funny it was inspired by a book- but we feel it was providential :) Enjoy this book with your kids!
I am lucky enough to be able to see Ms. Ray and thumb through her books at the Concord Farmers Market each weekend. She is a lovely, magical lady and this is a lovely, magical book! I cried when I first read it and it still makes me weepy because it shows such love and hope. (I am a grownup.) It is also very witty and it SOUNDS good out loud, so parents won't get tired of reading it over and over to the children. Everyone should have a chance to read and re-read Pumpkins, any time of year (it's not a Halloween book, really). Several local conservation organizations carry this book because it demonstrates (in a technically unrealistic way, but that really doesn't matter) how one person can make a big difference. I can't imagine anyone not being touched and amused by this book.
