"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 isthe big black type. A recipe for vegetable soup tops it all off!

This is a fantastic book that I have used for storytime many times. This book takes a complex subject "where does food come from" and makes it accessible and engaging for even very young children. The illustrations are bright, charming and cheerful. The text is simple and appealing but informative. There is a wealth of information packed into this simple tale, yet the book remains fun, upbeat and perfect for reading aloud. Highly recommended.
