"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 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." 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!

Review: Growing Vegetable Soup

User Review  - Mary - Goodreads

This is a clever book for young readers about the tools required for gardening and what is required to grow a garden in the first place. The illustrations are blocky and colorful, and the story is very simple. Great for ECE readers. Read full review

User Review  - Mckinley - Goodreads

Bright primary color graphics make the 'plain' story of growing vegetables and making a soup of then, stand out. Read full review
