Old Oak and Little Pumpkin

Our Little Pumpkins can scare easily and need reassurance from their Old Oaks that they are safe and loved.

What wonderful feelings to take to bed at night!

Old Oak and Little Pumpkin makes a perfect gift for children ages 3-8, as they

  • ​follow the cycle of seasons and changes

  • hunt for a butterfly in each illustration

  • think and talk about feelings

  • grasp that we cannot always see the help and support available to us and

  • take in Old Oak's precious message

Old Oak and Little Pumpkin is an inclusive and timeless tale of trust, courage and reassurance for all Little Pumpkins.
