Soup and Story

Posted on Thursday, November 30, 2017 by Kristy

Today, I get to head out of the library to entertain some preschoolers with a short story time about soup! It’s the perfect time of year for this warm and cozy theme, so I thought I would my favorite book and song about soup with you too.

So, whip up some soup, snuggle up with your little one and give these a try!"Mean Soup" book cover

First, read “Mean Soup” by Betsy Everitt. It follows a young boy named Horace who has had a bad day. Luckily, his mom knows just what to do when he gets home–make soup! Together, they yell into the soup and stick their tongues, venting their frustrations into the boiling pot. Will Horace’s day turn around? Check out the book to find out.

Next, sing this call and repeat song adapted from Jbrary’s “I Am Hungry

I am hungry.
What should I eat?
I think I’ll have pizza soup.
Without any meat!

I am hungry.
What should I eat?
I think I’ll have tomato soup.
With lots of heat!

I am hungry.
What should I eat?
I think I’ll have chocolate soup
Cold and sweet!

Feel free to swap in other soups you enjoy.
