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

For Inquiring Minds 24 April 2000
By Brenda - Published on
Format: Paperback
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.

Excellent book 6 Mar 2006
By L. James - Published on
Format: Paperback
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!

A similar book kids love 16 Nov 2011
By J. Darbyshire - Published on
Format: Paperback
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.

My 3-year old loves this book 17 Sep 2009
By Kristina - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I don't know what it is about this book, but my 3-year old loves it, to the point of crying hysterically when I accidentally returned it to the library recently and a little girl took it home instead, and my son couldn't have it. Disregard the naysayers. I'm now buying the book, so we will always have it on hand. The colors are bright and bold, and the story follows the process of preparing a garden, planting seeds and seedlings, watering the garden, weeding, picking vegetables, and finally cutting things up and making soup. My son loves all things outdoors (leaves, pinecones, rocks, etc.) and he adores this book.

Cute and great graphics! 9 Dec 2012

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
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!
