Pick Me Pick Me The Story of the Magic Pumpkin is an enchanting tale that forever transforms the experience of pumpkin picking into a new family tradition.

Using their Magic Pumpkin Charm, children find their own Magic Pumpkin and bring it to life to share the wonder of its single most important day - Halloween And as the magical day comes to a close, the Magic Pumpkin shares a secret that leaves them eagerly awaiting the next Halloween. Pumpkin picking will never be the same

It's a wonderful story, in poetic form, that captures the imagination of children and transforms Halloween into a magical time, forever drawing all who read it into a wonderful new family tradition.

The story began as a poem, but it's also a song. It was inspired by watching children pick pumpkins at Mack's Apples, the pick-your-own farm that I live near. It always put a smile on my face to hear their imaginations run wild as the children combed through the fields, looking for the perfect pumpkin.

Some children would choose one with a perfect shape, and for others the perfect pumpkin was one that was a bit odd looking - as if they felt it needed them. But all of them just couldn't wait to get home and bring their pumpkin to life by carving a happy face into it.

In addition to being a story book, Pick Me Pick Me The Story of the Magic Pumpkin is also one of seven original Halloween songs that my wife and I sing. If you're ever in our neighborhood for Halloween you can stop by and hear us perform them all.

Every Halloween we decorate a small patch of wooded area in front of our house, where for the last ten years we've performed for the trick-or-treaters who come to visit. I think we get as much out of the experience, if not more, than the children do I hope you enjoy hearing the story as much as I enjoy telling it.
