Summary: Each two-page spread has the name of a color and an ingredient for soup that is that color. Most are vegetables, but there is also white salt, black pepper, and clear water (or broth). The last few pages are action words: chop, drop, and bubble; the final page shows a bowl of soup and the word “yum”. Includes a page identifying all the ingredients and a recipe. 40 pages; ages 3-7.
Pros: Like a good soup, this book is simple yet satisfying, with large colorful illustrations that would look nice hanging on my kitchen wall. The vivid designs with plenty of white space make this a good introduction to colors and vegetables for the youngest readers.
Cons: Is clear a color?
