Books: Pumpkin Soup



A pleasant read for a chilly Autumn night, Pumpkin Soup serves up a warm story about three furry friends who make pumpkin soup the same way everyday. The Duck, the Cat and the Squirrel stick to their cooking duties until one day the Duck wants to do the stirring. After a squabble the Duck takes off leaving his pals worried. In the end, they do come together of course but not without facing the realities of friendship

Helen Cooper, who is the author and illustrator, makes you want to snuggle up in bed to read slowly through the pages. The drawings are all in warm colors and entice the reader in. I happened to tell the story by a crackling fire and you’ll probably want to do too.

This book and CD set is a nice gift to give this season. It’s Winner of the Kate Greenaway Medal.
