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.

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.

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.

I love when recipe books have pictures. Has seriously helped me figure out this whole cooking thing and you know, gardening.

But really, my 5yr old loves this book. Mostly because of the garden outside and he can go and get the veggies needed to make soup. Will he actually eat the soup? No, because veggies are "icky" and he prefers meats and cheeses. So I have to get them into his body some other way.....maybe pasta sauce.

Anyways, wonderful book. Arrived on time for bedtime reading and is a well made piece of work.

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!

As a gardener, I want to teach my grandson about the joy of growing vegetables and cooking with fresh ingredients. He likes this paperback book, but I find the colorful artwork very hard to look at. All-in-all, it is a good book for his collection.

I bought this for my 7 year old plant lover. He was very interested in growing something he could then eat. However, he was VERY bored by this book. There are only a few words on each page making it seem like a book better suited for a child maybe 5 or under. The book does include a receipe using the veggies mentioned in the book, which I thought was a nice touch, but you could also just google vegetable soup and find one online I guess.

This is a gorgeous book.... it is oversized and has big cardboard pages with really bright colors. I have a few of Lois Ehlert's other books but this is by far my favorite. I buy it as gifts for all of my friends children.

My daughter is fascinated with gardening and she likes to make things, so this book was perfect. She wants to make the soup recipe at the back of the book now, and she wants to grow onions and potatoes, too. It is a great book for babies and all young children. It has very simple short sentences like, "We are planting the seeds," along with illustrations of the seeds and the name under each one: corn seed, pea seed, carrot seed, etc. This is a great spring/summer book to add to your child's home library.
