    What a sweet little book! I loved the warm, caring home and the fun, attentive mom and the love of cooking that just rises up from the pages like delicious steam from a bowl of soup! ;-p Though the text is fairly sparse and the illustrations are a bit cartoony at times (it is a board book for young readers), I felt that every word was chosen with skill and the illustrations conveyed all the right emotions. I just loved the little things, like how the girl watches her mother chop vegetables for t [...]

    A great read for my toddler who is more and more interested in helping me in the kitchen.

    If I were a youngster, I'd give this one a 4 because it seems as though readers can almost smell and taste that delicious vegetable soup, made from fresh ingredients found during a shopping trip. I also love the fact that all the tasks are shared between mother and daughter, and because of this and the attitude both bring to their labors, what might be considered to be a chore by some becomes an adventure or at the very least a labor of love. The author chooses words that are just right--and par [...]

    I love this simple story with its descriptive language. First the child describes the vegetables she and her mother bought at the farmer's market. Then her mother chops the ingredients into tiny squares, circles, cubes and confetti. We hear noises, "sizzle," Ssssssss!" and "Mmmm!" and pick out which pasta we'll add to the pot--angel hair, farfalle, rotini, elbow macaroni, pastina, fettuccine or alphabet. I had not idea SOUP DAY could be so much fun. But now that I do, I'm so glad Melissa Iwai in [...]

    A recipe as a picture book, brilliant! Fun to read and great for practicing naming and counting vegetables. Pretty cool to find a book about an activity that I actually enjoy doing with my son too.

    This will be fun for a Preschool Storytime.

    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 [...]

    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 [...]

    We love to read and we love to cook. Books that encourage a cooking project are one of our favorites. Melissa Iwai's delightful book "Soup Day" walks you through a child and her mother having a soup day. They head to the market, prepare the ingredients, make their soup, play while they wait, and enjoy it as a family. With playful illustrations and concise language, Iwai celebrates the simplicity of working side by side with the ones we love. At the back is a recipe for the soup made by the chara [...]

    Soup Day is a wonderfully illustrated children's book. What better time to make soup then a snowy day? The daughter and mother go to the grocery store to pick out ingredients. Melissa Iwai includes all the necessary steps to making a vegetable soup. My pre-k students really liked the illustrations and explanations of how things were cut and added to the soup. A great activity was reading the book and pretending to do what the characters were doing. Personally, I really liked seeing an Asian chil [...]

    Mother and daughter go to market to purchase the vegetables for soup (counting) and then chop their purchases for cooking (shapes). Before long it's time to add spices and pasta (lots of types to choose from!). There's even a recipe at the back of the book. Bright, cheerful illustrations throughout.

    This is a simple and charming little book about a mother and daughter preparing vegetable soup.I love the fact that the characters made a vegan soup--and the recipe at the book's conclusion suggests vegetable broth as an alternative to meat broths. Veg*n families--or anyone trying to impart healthy eating patterns--will appreciate this one quite a bit.

    What a fun journey through a little girl's experience making soup with her mother. Bright and fun illustrations transport the reader into the story--we could almost smell the soup! Includes recipe for the soup at the end of the book. Might be a fun combo with "Ugly Vegetables", another title we enjoyed about making soup.

    We gave this book 5 stars plus 2 thumbs up. The style of illustration plus her fantastic text made it a delight to read aloud, over and over.We kept it at home one extra week just so we could try the recipe and it was worth it.A really nice choice for the family bookshelf or a trip to your biblio.
