How Many Seeds in a Pumpkin
Written by Margaret McNamara
Illustrated by G. Brian Karas

How many seeds in a pumpkin?" Mr. Tiffin asks his class as they gather around the big, medium, and small pumpkins on his desk.

"There's quite a lot to learn about pumpkins in this book, which even a math-phobe can love, plus there's kids working together and having their minds opened once their assumptions are trounced. Karas' stylized illustrations capture the fun of an engaging, hands-on classroom project." —San Francisco Chronicle
