    Simply gorgeous!, October 9, 2014
    This review is from: Garden Safari Vegetable Soup (Kitchen Club Kids) (Hardcover)
    Super cute book!!! This book is gorgeous I would love to collect the whole series. It had repetitive text, short simple phrasing, nice big letters, which is all perfect for young kids. It was a perfect combination of numbers, colors and cooking! The pictures are just amazing. I was literally gawking at the bright colorful pictures.
    And, the best for last – At the end of the book is the exact recipe of the soup the book is about so you could copy it down for yourself and use the book for your child (or grandchild) as you make it together.

    Garden Safari: Vegetable Soup
    Authors: Eluka Moore, Larry Puzniak and Marianne Welsh

    Illustrated by: Kristen Gau

    Close your eyes and take in the amazing aromas of the incredible ingredients that have been added to some simples stock to make vegetable soup created by some very special kids. Join the adventure, grab your own basket of vegetables and follow along as the Kitchen Club Kids invite you on this special mission. Calling all kids that love a good mission and adventure to come outside to this garden tilled with fresh vegetable to cook. Check out the amazing illustrations helping the project and the garden come alive. Take your basket, theirs being red, and let’s go on this Garden Safari along with the Kitchen Club Kids and check out what they decided to start with: First and foremost they needed a pot. A big one! How about two yellow onions that will be properly diced followed by cubing some blue potatoes and placing them in the pot with the onions? The fourth ingredient is one of my favorites: CELERY! Green and bright and crisp! This story is told in rhyme making it fun for kids and adults to read and enjoy. The illustrations make the vegetables come alive and you can smell their great fragrances just by looking at them and watching these kids prepare them for the soup. Next, let’s get some more color as we add orange carrots any rabbits favorite food. Crunchy and fun to eat and chew! I love carrots. What would vegetable soup be without some red, plump and ripe tomatoes? How about 6? So, we are up to step number 7, which is the most important and will help the soup come together what would be the broth and the golden chicken. Can you smell the amazing aromas as the ingredients are mixed by one of our Kitchen Club kids and the plot begins to thicken? Just like a mystery or thriller where you have to figure out the ending for yourself, finding out what steps 8, 9 and 10 are you will have to learn for yourself. Did they accomplish their goal? Is the soup delicious and tasty? What will they create next time? Keep counting and keep cooking in rhyme until next time! This book is great for anyone that want to learn how to make vegetable soup, work as a team and understand how to prepare and cut vegetables the right way. For this non-cook who never goes near a stove this was quite enlightening and just might get to try it out. The authors allow readers to recap the story in sequence form when list the steps from one to ten in picture form as the end of the poem. This allows even non-readers to understand the sequence of how to make soup. So, many lessons are learned: counting up to ten, sequencing, preparing vegetables in a safe way and working as a team to complete a task. The authors even printed out the Recipe for adults to have when making this soup with their child or even a Girl Scout or brownie troop. They even added other ingredients that might make the soup better. So, start cooking with a parent or older kids you can create your own Kitchen Club Group and recipes. This is a great series and I hope the authors will consider sending me more books to read and review. Colorful pictures and a story told in rhyme making it fun to read. This is one book my six year old niece wants to read and take to school to share with her teacher and her class. Garden Safari: Right outside your very door!

    This review is from: Garden Safari Vegetable Soup (Kitchen Club Kids) (Hardcover)
    Every time I review a children’s book, I seem to think that I am not going to find one to top it. I have to say, this one is at the top of my list right now. What an awesome idea for a book. Not only do your children get to hear a lovely story, but they also get to learn how to count (the ingredients are numbered in the book), learn their colors (each color “word” is in its particular color) and cook soup in the process. Now, this book is for children 2 – 6 years old, but I have to say, when my daughter saw the book, she was just as excited and she is 11 years old. I believe the whole “interactive” part of it and the fact that it rhymes, is what is going to draw a lot of young readers to it. And the fact that the soup had vegetables in it, made it so much better. At the end of the book you will find the soup in an actual recipe form (I am guessing this is for the parents) with cooking directions. There is also extra ways to make it taste even better.

    The illustrations in this book are amazing! I love how they have kids of different races. It will allow the children looking at the book to feel a part of it because they can see “themselves” in the book. The colors are bright and vibrant. Even though it is in “cartoon” form, every thing is pretty realistic looking.

    Garden Safari: Vegetable Soup (along with End of the Rainbow: Fruit Salad) is an amazing book in the Kitchen Club Series. I definitely will be getting the first one (End of the Rainbow: Fruit Salad) and purchasing the third one (Feed Your Senses: Homemade Bread) when it comes out.
