Growing Vegetable Soup
Harcourt Brace Jovanovich, 1987 - Juvenile Fiction - 32 pages
"Dad says we are going to grow vegetable soup." So begins Lois Ehlertís bright, bold picture book about vegetable gardening for the very young. The necessary tools 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, chopping, and cooking! In the end? "It was the best soup ever." Ehlertís simple, colorful cut-paper-style illustrations are child-friendly, as is the big black type. A recipe for vegetable soup tops it all off!
