Book Review: Pumpkin Soup by Helen Cooper - Reviewed by Sheepcoate (18 Dec 2013)
Pumpkin Soup is a fun story and it's understandable why the story has won so many awards.
The three animals who live in a old white cabin decided that they wanted some pumpkin soup, however when checking the pumpkin's they were not ready. They than looked around for alternatives, such as fish soup. Of course one of the friends was a little stubborn and really wanted Pumpkin Soup.
A great story to read to any fussy eater and there is a moral to the story to try something in case you might like it. Some nice colorful illustrations, great read.
