The experience of last-to-be-picked pumpkin, whose name is "Keeper", will offer encouragement and insight to all children who think about acceptance and love. It is an excellent choice for pre-readers and early readers, and is a wonderful choice for a parent-child share. Bill Pike is a long time elementary school educator, and former principal. The book is beautifully illustrated by Nell Chesley, a recognized artist and illustrator. Bill and Nell invite you and the children in your life to meet "Keeper" and enjoy a wonderful story.
