Kids’ Reading List: Who Grew My Soup?

Who Grew My Soup?Last week we introduced a new series of posts with fun ways to learn about food and farming with your kids. Each week, we’ll share another children’s book that connects the dots from farm to fork.

This week’s book is Who Grew My Soup? by Tom Darbyshire and illustrated by C.F. Payne. The picture book tells the tale of a young boy who refuses to eat his soup until his mother tells him who grew the vegetables in the concoction before him. A man in a flying tomato balloon swoops up the boy to visit the farms of the folks who grew the vegetables — carrots, beans, barley and more — that he’s about to eat.

Check back next week for another fun read!

Thanks to Holly Spangler for compiling this list, which was featured in the March 2012 issue of Farm Futures magazine.
