Now that the cold weather is here, it’s a good time to warm up with a tasty bowl of soup and snuggle up with a book. This title allows the reader to accomplish both of those things. It is soup day, and the little girl in this story and her mother go shopping for the vegetables. Back at home, they go through the steps of preparing the soup including washing and chopping the vegetables and cooking it all together. While it cooks, they have plenty of time to play and clean up. Then it is time for a yummy dinner. The author incorporates counting, shapes, colors, and an introduction to different types of pasta into the story. A recipe for snowy day vegetable soup is included. While I didn’t expect this title to be a favorite with my children, it is one that we have enjoyed over and over again. The story even inspired us to cook some soup together at home.
