A terrific Halloween book for children with developmental delays. Few words and lots of big, bold pictures that children can identify. Read full review

Review: Pumpkin Eye

User Review  - Mary - Goodreads

This rhyming book is very simple, but is good for very young children. The small number of words on each page make each one stand out better, encouraging their print awareness skills. Also, the rhythm to the book is one that could be repeated long after the book is over. Read full review
