Autumn brings pumpkin-everything – even book characters!

Sunny View Elementary School recently hosted a Pumpkin Book Character Contest. Students and families chose a favorite book character, then creatively decorated a pumpkin to look like that character. A winner was chosen from each classroom.

A total of 32 pumpkins were decorated and brought to share in the fun of this special literacy project. The library bookshelves were filled with the creatively-designed, round-faced book characters.

Visitors to the school’s annual Fall Festival were encouraged to tour the library and view the pumpkin creatures. The cheerful book characters brought lots of smiles to all.
