In the wonderful Literary Pumpkin tradition at the Susan Odell Taylor School, the Gr. 1/2 class has been busy decorating pumpkins.  Students were asked to select a character from one of the many read-alouds they have heard in the classroom this year. A number of students chose characters from books written and illustrated by Bill Peet, an author/illustrator we studied while reading his autobiography for our end-of-day read aloud.
