Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Ages 4-8. First published in 1979, Croll's funny, popular too-many-cooks story in the I Can Read series is newly illustrated here, with the babas (grandmothers) in a Russian winter setting. The simple, bright pictures in folk-art style show the bustling peasant women in the kitchen, each one tasting and adding and making a bigger mess of the soup. Hazel Rochman --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

What a wonderful little tale! I actually read this in a second grade basal reader. My class loved it and so did I. I felt like I knew the four ladies that ruined soup together (or maybe I wished I knew them.) The characters were lovable and the story was very appealing as well. I think any child would love this book.

In this funny story, Baba Edis woke up one morning in her cabin and it was freezing cold. So she wants to warm her bones by making soup. After she finds a bone, she adds beans, carrots, celery cabbage, and an onion for flavor. Her friends Baba Basha, Baba Yetta and Baba Molka invite themselves to have a bowl. While the soup is cooking they each taste it. Baba Basha feels the soup needs salt and adds a fistful of it. Baba Yetta thinks the soup needs more pepper and gives the pepper grinder too many turns. Baba Molka adds an entire bulb of garlic to the soup. The soup is ruined and has to be remade at dinnertime. Baba Edis Cried about it after the soup had to be thrown out. But all four ladies learned that too many cooks without a plan can spoil the broth.

This is a book that I am sure that your children will love. It was one of my personal favorites as a child and I wanted to share it with my children. It brings back good memories and it has an excellent hidden meaning behind it.

I have been reading this story to our grandson since he was little. Now he's 10 but still loves the story and reads it to me. I thought I had lost the book and was just sick about it so was delighted when I found it on Amazon. I did find my own copy recently so now we will have 2 copies--one for his house and one for mine!
