“We-View” Wednesday: Soup Day by Melissa Iwai

Welcome back to “We-View” Wednesday!  After months off, I’ve decided to bring back this feature.  My son is in second grade and is a fluent reader now.  We still read together daily and I thought it would benefit him to summarize (sometimes orally, sometimes written) books that we read.   At the same time you all will become familiar with books kids his age may like to read.   I hope you will join us!  Click here to read about the original intent of “We-View” Wednesday.

A few changes:

  • This will become a monthly feature instead of a weekly feature.  I will post “we-views” on the third Wednesday of every month.
  • I’m still learning different aspects to blogging and trying to become familiar with linky features.  I may eventually make this a linky, but for now, if you would like to join this feature, please email me at  dlittle {at} linkstoliteracy {dot} com by the Sunday before the third Wednesday of the month with your “we-view”.  I would love to be able to post multiple book “we-views” of different aged children.  Please make sure to include your blog address so that others can check you out, too!

Here is our latest “we-view”

Soup Day by Melissa Iwai

Soup Day is a cute story about a little girl and her mother.  Together they take us through the steps of making soup from shopping, to chopping, and then waiting for the soup to cook.  While waiting, they play and clean up.  It’s a great story of a bonding experience between a mother and daughter.  The author also adds in a little math, which my son quickly picked up on, by way of counting the various vegetables that go into the soup.  I would recommend this book for kids ages 4-7.  My son read it to me and then gave me this summary:

In Soup Day the kid makes soup with her mom.  They count the vegetables they put in the soup.  The author gives you a recipe at the end of the book.  Maybe this book will encourage my mom to make soup with me.
