The soup that the family makes is very healthy, and it shows kids that eating healthy is a positive thing done in every family. The young girl's enthusiasm for this healthy meal also is used to convince kids that healthy food can be tasty! My favorite part of this book is on the last page, there is the actual recipe for the exact soup made in the book.
Children can read this book and see the characters enjoying their soup. Then they can go make the same soup with their parents if they want to try it. The pictures drawn of the foods in Soup Day look very similar to how the foods look in real life. The carrots are orange and have the green leaves coming out from the top, the onions have the outer wrapping on them, and the cucumbers have a dark green outside and a light green inside same as a real cucumber. There is also a page in the book that has pictures of all different types of noodles. There is everything from angel hair to Farfalle to Rotini to Alphabet noodles.

If the reader did not know what these types of pasta looked like, there is a picture right next to it showing the different shapes of the noodles. The pictures really added to this book by showing how the soup will actually look when it is done cooking. Sep 30, Emily Benner rated it liked it Shelves: This book is about a young girl who helps her mother cook soup for dinner. First together they go to the grocery store to get the ingredients for the soup, and after that they return back home to wash all of the produce off and cut the vegetables.

Next, girl gets to pick what type of noodles she wants to add to the soup. She ends up choosing the alphabet noodles because she enjoys spelling things with them. At the end of the story, the soup finishes cooking and the little girls father comes home and they all enjoy eating the soup as a family. Two ways that you could incorporate this book into classroom activities is through creative arts and higher order thinking strategies.
With creative arts you could have the children create macaroni collages on paper plates and color in the empty space around the noodles to make it look like a bowl of soup. For higher order thinking strategies, you could ask the children questions such as: Do you have a favorite soup? What is you favorite thing to cook with your parent s? Can you tell me one ingredient that went into the soup in the story? You could also send the recipe that is found in the back of the book home with the children for them to make with their families.
Aug 24, Tasha rated it really liked it Shelves: Today is soup day, so a little girl and her mother head to the store through the snowy streets. There they buy the ingredients for their soup, careful to choose the vegetables with the brightest colors. They pick out green celery, yellow onions, orange carrots, white mushrooms and more. Back at home, they wash the vegetables and cut them into little pieces. The little girl gets to help with a plastic knife and the softer veggies. The mother and child play together as the smell of soup fills the house.
Finally spices and pasta are added and then they sit down to dinner with Daddy.

The selection of vegetables mentioning their colors is done with a gentle tone, and most children will not notice that colors are being reviewed in that part of the story. The focus on what the little girl is able to do is charming and affirming for children. Seeing her pride and involvement is a large part of the story. They mix the textures of textiles with the crispness of photos and the brushstrokes of painting.
The result is a rich blend that makes for engaging illustrations. The book is printed on nice heavy pages, making it welcoming for toddler hands. This book is as warm and welcoming as a big bowl of homemade soup. Add it to your recipe for a great story time or a unit on soup or food. It would be ideal paired with a version of Stone Soup. Appropriate for ages Sep 19, Heather rated it really liked it Shelves: It is a slow winter day. So a little girl and her mother go out and buy the ingredients for some hot soup.
They pick out the freshest, brightest vegetables. After washing them, the little girl cuts the mushrooms and zucchini. Once all the veggies are cut up they start to cook the veggies. Then they pour in the broth. They play different games while they wait. They try out the soup when it starts bubbling. Momma adds spices Title: Momma adds spices and then the daughter puts in alphabet noodles. Daddy comes home and they start enjoying their delicious soup. I think the plot is an important aspect of this story to look at and point out to students.
Its shows the process of making something, which is at the top of Bloom's Taxonomy chart. A child can learn the process of what cooking something is like, from purchasing the products to eating the meal. A question to consider would be how is what the young girl is doing addressing the top of blooms taxonomy? I think a good activity for students would be for them to come up with their favorite recipe.
They can write them down and write the directions under that.
For a younger class I could have them take plastic food products and have them show me their favorite meals. Nov 19, Jessi rated it it was amazing. The pictures are extremely well done and quirky. The book focuses on a girl who looks to be Asian and her presumably adoptive white mother as they prepare a meal together. I love that the protagonists in the story are an underrepresented population of society.
This is obviously not the focus of the book, but it does add something special in my opinion. This book is a great find for younger children. Kids will be drawn in by the pictures and will think it's fun to see the pictures of the foods tha The pictures are extremely well done and quirky. Kids will be drawn in by the pictures and will think it's fun to see the pictures of the foods that are being added as well as to hear them pronounced vegetables, spices, various kinds of pasta.
In a very subtle way, it builds extra vocabulary for the younger kiddos. It will also help that there may be prior knowledge about certain parts of the book - a young child would possibly be able to relate to seeing a parent cooking, playing with a parent, and having to put things away. This is the perfect read for a parent and child to bond together, and there is even a recipe for Snowy Day Vegetable Soup at the back of the book if the kids are interested in actually cooking with a parent.
Nov 21, Anna rated it really liked it Shelves: A girl and her mother make a day of making soup. The bright collage illustrations are large and easy to see, perfect for sharing with groups. This book is filled with description that makes for easy extended educational interaction with the reader. For example, on one page the characters count the vegetables in their grocery basket and on another they discuss the shapes that the cut vegetable make: This book is substantial with a well-paced storyline that ends neatly.
I found the cover art slightly misleading. I was excited to review the book because I thought it was about an Asian family.

The main character looked Asian on the cover to me. This book screams preschool story time. It would also work nicely for one-on-one sharing. Oct 25, Elizabeth Lauver rated it it was amazing Shelves: Soup Day by Melissa Iwai, was a great book to someday share with your own child.
I would also like to have this book available for my students in my future classroom. I enjoyed reading this book because it reminded me of my own family and what my mom would do when I was a young child. I also enjoyed the idea of going to the market picking out the supplies and finally creating the soup. I also liked the aspect of having the child be patient until the soup was finished. The way the author had the Soup Day by Melissa Iwai, was a great book to someday share with your own child. The way the author had the mother spend time with the daughter was a great touch to the book, because some families today miss that aspect of raising children.
That is why I enjoyed this book so much, because of all of the family ties it had in it and I believe my future students need to be exposed to that.
