Product Description

From Publishers Weekly

The title says everything the book contains. First, there is the idea, then the actual work: tools are employed for planting seeds that grow first into sprouts, then into plants and then vegetables. The process involves water, weeding, digging up and washing; finally, there is the reward of cooking the vegetables and, yes, eating the soupthe end of the chain, at least this year. The book provides a healthy dose of completely digestible information on growing and nurturing living things; it's also a zesty introduction to vivid, abstract art. Both Ehlert's illustrations and her basic instructions shed light and color on the simple pleasures of gardening. Ages 3-8.

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-Grade 1 This is the boldest, brassiest garden book to hit the market, and what a delight. Intensely colored graphics capture the complete growing process from seed to cooking pot, with the focus on the plants. The unseen narrator describes the process of growing vegetable soup, from preparing the tools and digging holes for the seeds to weeding plants; picking vegetables; washing, chopping, and cooking themand finally enjoying the homemade soup while planning to grow more next year. It's a fresh presentation of the gardening cycle with a joyful conclusion, and the added attraction of an easy and tasty recipe for vegetable soup on the flyleaf. A book to help nourish healthy readers. Barbara Peklo Serling, Oneida City Schools, N.Y.

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.

HASH(0x9e671d80) out of 5 stars Excellent book March 5 2006
By L. James - Published on Amazon.com
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!

HASH(0x9d854018) out of 5 stars A similar book kids love Nov. 16 2011
By J. Darbyshire - Published on Amazon.com
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.

HASH(0x9d977780) out of 5 stars A Preschool-Level Introduction to Vegetable Gardening April 10 2012
By Shanna A. Gonzalez - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This simple story introduces children to the basic growing cycle of garden vegetables. It opens with a child narrator stating, "Dad says we're going to grow vegetable soup." The narrator then explains in simple terms how the family goes about cultivating their vegetables, from planting to harvest. Ehlert illustrates each step with her characteristic collage-style art, more abstract than some of her other work. This is a great introduction to the joy of gardening, and the fact that this garden is a family project, culminating in a shared meal of soup, imbues the story with relational warmth.

With its predictable, simple text and visual warmth, this is a great preschooler read-aloud. It may also be enjoyed by early readers, although they might need help reading the names of vegetables.

HASH(0x9d95a0a8) out of 5 stars Mmmm noodle soup. No no, VEGETABLE soup. July 2 2016
By Satske - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I love when recipe books have pictures. Has seriously helped me figure out this whole cooking thing and you know, gardening.

But really, my 5yr old loves this book. Mostly because of the garden outside and he can go and get the veggies needed to make soup. Will he actually eat the soup? No, because veggies are "icky" and he prefers meats and cheeses. So I have to get them into his body some other way.....maybe pasta sauce.

Anyways, wonderful book. Arrived on time for bedtime reading and is a well made piece of work.
