October Kidtoons:Spookley the Sqaure Pumpkin {Giveaway}

Spookley the Square Pumpkin is my favorite. The first time that I read the book to my son, we were hooked to the wonderful story. Then when we found out that there was a movie as well we were super excited! This month Spookley the Square Pumpkin is the feature of the month from KidToons. If you have not caught some of our past posts about KidToons they are awesome. At participating theaters (check here to see if there is a theater near you) on Saturday for the matinee you can have a wonderful and inexpensive day to the movies with your kids. The movies are wonderful as well, they usually have a great lesson or theme to them. This month with Spookley you can learn about bullying and why we should NEVER be a bully.

October is National Bullying Prevention Month and Spookley the Square Pumpkin has been named the official Spokes-Pumpkin through a partnership with PACER Center. PACER, a national organization based in Minneapolis,  Minn., works to expand opportunities and enhance the quality of life of all  children and young adults, including those with any disability,  and their  families, based on the concept of parents helping  parents . 
Here's the synopsis for Spookley the Square Pumpkin:  In a world where "the only good pumpkins are round pumpkins," Spookley the Square Pumpkin is often teased by the other pumpkins because of his square shape. Soon, Spookley is befriended by Edgar, Allan and Poe, three hilarious spiders, who convince Spookley that, square or not, he has a right to be the "Pick of the Patch" on Halloween. A square pumpkin the "Pick of the Patch"? Not if mean round pumpkins Big Tom and Little Tom can help it. These two bullies tease and taunt Spookley because of his square roots. Although he is encouraged to continue to become the "Pick of the Patch" by kindly Jack Scarecrow and his bat sidekicks, Boris and Bella, Spookley isn't sure he has what it takes until a mighty storm threatens to destroy the entire patch. As the storm rolls the round pumpkins across  the patch towards a raging river below, Spookley's square shape helps him save the day.  Spookley realizes "it's fine to be round while the weather is fair, but there are times it's better to be a square!"
