Description


Melissa Iwai's Soup Day celebrates the importance of making a nutritious meal and sharing in the process as a family.

On a cold, snowy day, a young girl and her mother shop to buy ingredients for vegetable soup. At home, they work together—step by step—to prepare the meal. While the soup is cooking, they spend the time playing games and reading. Before long, Daddy's home and the family sits down to enjoy a home made dinner.

Praise For…


“I loved this book! If only it had been around when my daughter Melissa was little, maybe I would have made something for dinner other than reservations!” —Joan Rivers

“Iwai's writing debut beautifully depicts the loving relationship between a mother and daughter… Ordinariness made extraordinary.” —Kirkus Reviews, STARRED review

“A perfect meal and a perfect book.” —School Library Journal

“Idyllic and cozy with colorful, textured illustrations, the book also offers a perfect recipe for tiny hands.” —Associated Press

“The brightly colored illustrations--combining acrylics, fabric and paper collage, and digital elements--offer plenty of familiar elements for young children to identify and new ones to explore, such as six kinds of pasta pictured on one page. Satisfying for reading aloud.” —Booklist
