Community Soup“Community Soup” by Alma Fullerton is a fun book to read aloud. The images of the book are colorful and draw in preschool listeners.

Having the recipe for the Pumpkin Vegetable Soup at the close of the book means you could easily turn it into a day long activity – story reading, soup making, re-tell the story, soup eating. You could even visit a goat-herd to add to the enjoyment of the book.

For me, this lovely story combines the folktale “Stone Soup” with “Mary had a Little Lamb”. In other words, it is a singable book. Check out the video to see how I share this story.
