October - Pumpkin Feels Lonely


Poor old pumpkin.

The veggie patch gardener has only grown one of him and he has no one to play with.

The other veg are all happy to play with him but he's not able to do the things they can do and he feels really lonely.

Until someone spots him sadly rolling away and everyone decides that rolling looks the most fun of all.

Pumpkin learns to focus on what you CAN do and not what you CAN'T do.


Values Education Scheme value linked to the story: Respect is valuing the worth of yourself, others and the environment.
