Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Using her characteristically vibrant palette, Ehlert details the raising of a vegetable garden to make "the best soup ever." A recipe is included in this book which PW termed a "zesty introduction to vivid abstract art." Ages 2-7.
Copyright 1990 Reed Business Information, Inc.

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-Grade 1 This is the boldest, brassiest garden book to hit the market, and what a delight. Intensely colored graphics capture the complete growing process from seed to cooking pot, with the focus on the plants. The unseen narrator describes the process of growing vegetable soup, from preparing the tools and digging holes for the seeds to weeding plants; picking vegetables; washing, chopping, and cooking themand finally enjoying the homemade soup while planning to grow more next year. It's a fresh presentation of the gardening cycle with a joyful conclusion, and the added attraction of an easy and tasty recipe for vegetable soup on the flyleaf. A book to help nourish healthy readers. Barbara Peklo Serling, Oneida City Schools, N.Y.

This is a great spring/summer book to add to your child's home library.

A great colorful starter book for chubby little fingers to help early children to begin to develop an interest in reading and good nutrition.

Children of all ages will enjoy this book, especially if they love to grow plants. Growing Vegetable Soup is also woderfully illustrated. I used this book in a Literacy Bag in conjuction with a Peter Rabbit Garden created by my university. An activity that can be used with the book for young children would be a matching game--vegetable or tool picture to word.

Format: Paperback
As a teacher, I have always loved this book. The bold colors hold children's attention, and it fits well with lessons for younger children on what seeds/plants need to grow, the growing process and includes a recipe for making your own vegetable soup. For early childhood teachers,it can become an early science/social studies/math lesson and also a parent/child activity. A must have!

If you like this book, check out "Who Grew My Soup" about a boy who hatches a scheme to avoid eating his vegetables, but ends up on a madcap adventure to learn where food comes from. Chosen by the Agriculture Department for its "Agriculture in the classroom" program. Awesome illustrations by the famous C. F. Payne.

6 of 8 people found the following review helpful By PeaTee TOP 500 REVIEWER on December 12, 2005
Format: Hardcover
This book has gotten good reviews by others but I am a little less enthusiastic about it.

Certainly I love the concept of teaching about gardening and how food makes it's way from the soil to our plates; but the artwork, I think, gets in the way of making this a superior 5-Star text.

For example, the abstract art [bold and attractive] is okay for demonstrating seeds sitting in the soil, but it is not very good for actually showing what a squash blossom looks like. For all you can tell, it's a open tulip on a vine. Likewise the corn is shown as being orange instead of yellow.

Four Stars. This book gives children an idea of how food goes from the ground to the bowl, but if you are looking for a book that will give your young child an accurate picture of what growing veggies look like, you'll have to keep searching.

A cute book about gardening, basically listing the tools and veggies. Then a fun recipe at the end. Can't wait until my daughter is old enough to garden and try out the soup recipe!

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By Shanna A. Gonzalez on April 10, 2012
Format: Paperback
This simple story introduces children to the basic growing cycle of garden vegetables. It opens with a child narrator stating, "Dad says we're going to grow vegetable soup." The narrator then explains in simple terms how the family goes about cultivating their vegetables, from planting to harvest. Ehlert illustrates each step with her characteristic collage-style art, more abstract than some of her other work. This is a great introduction to the joy of gardening, and the fact that this garden is a family project, culminating in a shared meal of soup, imbues the story with relational warmth.

With its predictable, simple text and visual warmth, this is a great preschooler read-aloud. It may also be enjoyed by early readers, although they might need help reading the names of vegetables.

This is a terrific book to use for toddlers or young students learning English. The illustrations are clear and the vocabulary is easy to follow. A terrific book to spark a conversation about healthy eating habits.

Format: Paperback
As well as being attractive and quite an easy read (my five year old managed it), it encourages children to be interested in vegetables-both growing and eating them. Great book.
