A good story carries one far away, and this one certainly does that. It takes me to when I was five, skipping second grade at Sartori Elementary in Renton, Washington, in 1961.

My school had an enormous library, full of good books and a nice Librarian, who imparted to me my love of books and facts and stories. That Library was amazing! There were screenings of Bell Laboratory science movies (Directed by Frank Capra), great big Encyclopedias, and huge models of Saturn and our Moon, hanging in the Lobby. It was magnificent, and I remember it fondly.

I walked under those planetary models every day, and I went to the Library as often as I could, and my imagination was stoked! I wanted to go to Outer Space! (I almost went once, and I'll tell you about it some time).

Well, this book is like that. "Solar System Soup," written by Lindsay Marshall and Illustrated by Don Bearwood, takes the Reader on a fanciful journey around our Solar System, where Sam's Dad gathers ingredients from the Planets, to make Sam a special Birthday Soup.

It's a simple story, and a good one, and if I tell you too much, I'll just mess it up. Don Bearwood's illustrations are charming, done in colored pencil and paint, by hand! Not on a computer! And they are lovely, in that way I remember from my favorite books as a child. They stick in my mind, and I am glad I read this book. You'll like "Solar System Soup," too! So will your kids.

A very imaginative story of a loving Dad who does the seeming impossible to get what his son wants. It is this kind of imagination that enables a person to see beyond themselves and the limitations of the everyday world we see and touch. Mixed in is a very good educational description of the various planets and their characteristics. But what is really cool is the brightness and variety of the colors used in the illustrations. The pictures would make any child excited and feel good while thinking about just what color is after all, and where did all the different colors come from, and why do they make me hungry!

Most adults have forgotten these thoughts and wonderings, but this book brings them back.

As well as entertaining the book is educational. The planets in the story are true to form and color. Great for ages 7 and up.
