Rather young for my four year olds but great picture book and will be fairly useful when discussing food issues

5.0 out of 5 stars For Inquiring Minds 24 April 2000
By Brenda - Published on
Children of all ages will enjoy this book, especially if they love to grow plants. Growing Vegetable Soup is also woderfully illustrated. I used this book in a Literacy Bag in conjuction with a Peter Rabbit Garden created by my university. An activity that can be used with the book for young children would be a matching game--vegetable or tool picture to word.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent book 6 Mar 2006
By L. James - Published on
As a teacher, I have always loved this book. The bold colors hold children's attention, and it fits well with lessons for younger children on what seeds/plants need to grow, the growing process and includes a recipe for making your own vegetable soup. For early childhood teachers,it can become an early science/social studies/math lesson and also a parent/child activity. A must have!

4.0 out of 5 stars A similar book kids love 16 Nov 2011
By J. Darbyshire - Published on
If you like this book, check out "Who Grew My Soup" about a boy who hatches a scheme to avoid eating his vegetables, but ends up on a madcap adventure to learn where food comes from. Chosen by the Agriculture Department for its "Agriculture in the classroom" program. Awesome illustrations by the famous C. F. Payne.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Book for Small Children - a review of Growing Veg. Soup 12 Dec 2005
By PeaTee - Published on
This book has gotten good reviews by others but I am a little less enthusiastic about it.

Certainly I love the concept of teaching about gardening and how food makes it's way from the soil to our plates; but the artwork, I think, gets in the way of making this a superior 5-Star text.

For example, the abstract art [bold and attractive] is okay for demonstrating seeds sitting in the soil, but it is not very good for actually showing what a squash blossom looks like. For all you can tell, it's a open tulip on a vine. Likewise the corn is shown as being orange instead of yellow.

Four Stars. This book gives children an idea of how food goes from the ground to the bowl, but if you are looking for a book that will give your young child an accurate picture of what growing veggies look like, you'll have to keep searching.

A cute book about gardening, basically listing the tools and veggies. Then a fun recipe at the end. Can't wait until my daughter is old enough to garden and try out the soup recipe!
