Today we read a delightful book called, 'Soup Day' by Melissa Iwai.
As the weather gets cooler, warm lunches and dinners make wonderful additions to the menu (especially soup). Soup Day takes children though the process of making soup. The little girl goes to the market to help select the needed vegetables, she helps cut them, and her mother adds all the spices they like. The illustrations serve to support and enhance the story as they are colourful and appealing.
The only part of the story that I chose to change was a part about hiding from a monster. If young children have no knowledge of this, I saw no reason to introduce what could potentially lead to a fear that was not there before *smile*.
I forgot to mention: there is even a nice recipe for vegetable soup at the end of the book. It sounds delicious!
