In her signature style, Anne Rockwell conveys the adventure of a trip to the supermarket from a young child's point-of-view.

Thirty years ago, Anne Rockwell collaborated with her husband Harlow on this charming book. This beloved favorite has been newly updated, now as a board book, for a new generation of young readers.

A young girl spends a glorious fall day picking apples and searching for the perfect pumpkin in this refreshed classic.

"When red and yellow leaves are on the trees," a little girl goes with her parents to a farm where they pick apples and choose "the best pumpkin of them all." Back home, she helps to carve a grinning jack-o'-lantern face on the big orange pumpkin, which guards their doorstep on halloween night while her mother hands out shiny red apples and she and her father go trick-or-treating with the neighborhood ghosts and goblins.
