“Soup Day” by Melissa Iwai
“From choosing the vegetables to picking the pasta shapes, the journey of cooking homemade soup is filled with small learning lessons that are incorporated in a subtle way. Sound, smell, taste and touch combine to pepper the text with the swirl-and-whirl of broth, vegetables, and spices. Carrots become circles, onions become squares, parsley becomes confetti. Yellow onions, white mushrooms and green zucchini sizzle and bubble. With pitch perfect tone Soup Day is a celebration of cooking as a means of spending time together and creating something delicious and healthy in the process.”
Did you know that January is national soup month? I’d like to share with you a great children’s book called “Soup Day” by Melissa Iwai.
I love this book from top to bottom. Each page is colorful, and fun to just look at. The story takes us through a day of making soup. From shopping to chopping and enjoying it.
I love that this book teaches kids about eating healthy and how to pick out the healthy foods. Another great point of this book is it helps with counting and shapes. I also enjoy the fact that the child and mom are spending the day together. I feel in this day and age we forget to spend time with our kids and this book not only shows it but shows the family spending time together being healthy.
At the end of the book is the recipe of the soup made in the book. And ti sounds mmmmmm so good.
This book seems to think of everything, I love that the corners are rounded making it friendly for your little one to handle and not worry about them poking themselves. WOW.
I recommend this book to all families. Encourages healthy family time and includes leaning aspects.
