Sophie's Squash Kindle Edition
On a trip to the farmers' market with her parents, Sophie chooses a squash, but instead of letting her mom cook it, she names it Bernice. From then on, Sophie brings Bernice everywhere, despite her parents' gentle warnings that Bernice will begin to rot. As winter nears, Sophie does start to notice changes.... What's a girl to do when the squash she loves is in trouble?
The recipient of four starred reviews, an Ezra Jack Keats New Writer Honor, and a Charlotte Zolotow Honor, Sophie's Squash will be a fresh addition to any collection of autumn books.

There is an independent bookstore next to our local farmer's market. They have a children's book section, but did NOT have this book! I talked to the owner, and said "How can you have all of this 'farmer's market' foot traffic and NOT have this book displayed front & center?!?"
She looked into it, and it is now proudly displayed front and center every time I walk in during the farmer's market. I hope I helped this book make it into more homes, because it brings me and my child a ton of joy.
This is a book that will stand the test of time. I have no doubt. :)
The ending was very sweet. It brought closure and also left a smile because it sort of introduces the circle of life.
I really like this story.
Update: Since the book discusses decomposition I got a butternut squash and drew a face on it. The kids in my class loved looking after Sophie. We counted how many days it took for our squash to decompose. It was a great activity.
