Pumpkin Soup by Helen Cooper - "Deep in the woods in an old white cabin, three friends make their pumpkin soup the same way every day. The Cat slices up the pumpkin, the Squirrel stirs in the water, and the Duck tips in just enough salt." This is a great story about friendship and working through squabbles. The illustrations are warm and inviting...and there is even a recipe for pumpkin soup at the end. I suggest reading this book and inviting the kids to help you in the kitchen afterwards
Soup is always delicious in the fall, and Cat, Duck and Squirrel love to make it together. Until one day they have a disagreement. Here are other wonderful picture book selections for you and your child to enjoy.
