This lap-size board book edition is almost as large as the original edition. Nothing is lost here; the colors are rich and inviting, the text is clear and bright, and the story--about growing veggies to make soup--is intact. The large book is a bit heavy but will stand up to much use by toddlers turning pages for themselves. Copyright 2008 Horn Book Guide Reviews.

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. (Mar.) Copyright 1990 Cahners Business Information.

Favorite titles are now available as board books for smallest hands. Upon the original publication, in 1987, of Lois Ehlert's electric-hued Growing Vegetable Soup, PW called it a "zesty introduction to vivid abstract art." With just one phrase per spread, the book makes a smooth transition to board book as it follows the long process of planting and growing ingredients for a truly homemade soup.

The title says everything the book contains. First, there is the idea, then the actual work: tools are employed for planting seeds that grow first into sprouts, then into plants and then vegetables. The process involves water, weeding, digging up and washing; finally, there is the reward of cooking the vegetables and, yes, eating the soupthe end of the chain, at least this year. The book provides a healthy dose of completely digestible information on growing and nurturing living things; it's also a zesty introduction to vivid, abstract art. Both Ehlert's illustrations and her basic instructions shed light and color on the simple pleasures of gardening. Ages 3-8. (March) Copyright 1987 Cahners Business Information.

PreS-Gr 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. Copyright 1987 Cahners Business Information.
