Stories Of Pumpkin (9+)

Just like "Stories Of Jennifer," but Pumpkin is a 6th grade boy living a completely different life. (Jennifer is only in 4th grade.) To find out more about the characters, look toward my account on Storybird. I DO NOT OWN THIS ART! ALL CREDIT FOR THE ILLUSTRATIONS GOES TO THE AMAZING PAUL MCDOUGALL!!!


10. After Labor Day - Part 1

After Labor Day ended, Pumpkin made up a poem in his head about the holiday:

On Labor Day we celebrate

The hands that built this land;

That dug the ditches, shoveled coal,

And tilled the soil and sand,

The hands that fought, the hands that healed,

The hands that held the tools...

But must we celebrate the hands

That built these stinkin' schools?

Pumpkin couldn't stop thinking about the poem...until he got to school and his eyes beheld an amazing surprise!
