Resource Description

“Dad says we are going to grow vegetable soup.” So begins Lois Ehlert’s bright, bold picture book about vegetable gardening for the very young. The necessary tolls are pictured and labeled, as are the seeds (green bean, pea, corn, zucchini squash, and carrot). Then the real gardening happens…planting, weeding, harvesting, washing, shopping and cooking! In the end? “It was the best soup ever.” Ehlert’s simple, colorful cut-paper style illustrations are child-friendly, as is the big black type. A recipe for vegetable soup tops it all off!
