Pumpkin Soup by Helen Cooper is an adorable book for kids, perfect for the Fall. I bought this cauldron this year and it’s been used far more than most of the other things I’ve bought for the school year. All manner of dramatic play is going down pretty much daily, featuring this plastic cauldron!
I knew these 2 things would be the perfect combo for our pumpkin unit!
