Eva’s class cannot wait for their field trip to the pumpkin farm! On the farm, they pick apples, milk cows, and even make new friends. But then an award-winning pumpkin goes missing! Eva and her friends will have to solve the mystery. Will they find the pumpkin in time for the holiday party… and also help a friend in need? In this sweet fall story, Eva discovers that everyone has something to be thankful for!

{My thoughts} – I really cannot get over how amazing this book series is! Eva is a sweet little owl that keeps track of her day to day in a diary. Each book is a diary based on the events that are taking place in Treetopolis at the time the book takes place.

We have been on so many different adventures with Eva, her family and her classmates, that this book is no exception. In Treetopolis they celebrate a day called Falling Leaves Day. It is quite similar to that of Thanksgiving and it is a day for all the animals of the forest to show their thanks and appreciation for the things they have, their friends and family and more.

I love how the illustrations and the text within these books go hand and hand. I love how it is written in diary form and is a lot like a graphic novel. Visual learning is just as important as being read to or learning to read, these books are colorful and amazing. They have simple text and amazing illustrations. My three year old enjoys having these read to her and she likes to point at the images as well as the colors and of course we spend more time telling her what is what then reading, but that’s all a part of the wonderful learning process at her age.

I cannot wait until she gets a little older and is ready to learn how to read. These books will be some of the first on our list! I can’t wait to see where this series is going with the next book!

Final Conclusion: 5 Star Rating.
