Charlie is the smallest in his class, and is always at the back of the line. When the class decides to guess which pumpkin has the most seeds, Charlie picks the smallest. The class counts seeds by twos, fives, and tens, as each group tries to figure out who has the most seeds. Everyone is in for a surprise though, as they learn what makes the most seeds isn't what pumpkin is the biggest; as Charlie says 'Small things have a lot going on inside of them.' A gentle read that incorporates both math and science. 40 pages, hardcover with dust jacket. Ages 3-7.
