Soup Day by Melissa Iwai - ADVISABLE

Iwai, Melissa Soup Day. BOARD BOOK. Henry Holt and Company, 2017. $8. 9781250127723
A young girl and her mom spend the day together creating a yummy pot of soup. They shop for vegetables, wash and cut them up, and put them together with broth, noodles, and spices. Mom and daughter play together while the soup cooks, and then eat the soup with Dad when he arrives home.

I really like this little book; it has a lovely calm and homey feeling to it. The story is simple and straightforward, but its really well done. Both of my kids have requested we read it multiple times a day. The illustrations are fun--with different patterns and colors adding some nice depth--and there is even a recipe for vegetable soup at the back. Overall, a nice pick in board books.
