In Search of the Perfect Pumpkin is also perfect for fall. It is the story of a family who are out hunting for the perfect pumpkin in order to make the perfect pumpkin pie. They drive across the miles, explore various pumpkin patches and grocery stands, all in a quest to make "the greatest, most unbelievably scrumptuous, Red Sox-winning, school-closing, turtle-alive-in-a-vacuum-cleaner, gooey-cheese-pizza-right-out-of-the-oven, melt-in-your-mouth-s'mores kind of pies anyeone every tasted." After many years of baking with pumpkins from all over, they decide to grow their own pumpkins. In so doing, they meet with success.
The great things about both of these books from Fulcrum Publishing is that each page holds information about the subject matter at hand, in addition to telling a story. For example, in the pumpkin story each page has some facts about pumpkins including where the largest was grown, how to make a horn out of a pumpkin, how much pumpkin is needed to make one pie, and how pumpkins have been used throughout the ages (even as a cure for freckles!). They are delightful, informative stories that I'm sure your family will be able to enjoy and talk about for some time.
