This book is a great book for young children and lower elementary grades because of the wonderful, detailed illustrations. The vocabulary used in the book would be easy for younger children to comprehend. It teaches children to share and that change can sometimes be for the best. ( )

Different - though the main characters are just as cuddly and fuzzy as their counterparts in most typical picture-books, the story and the rest of the illustrations are richer, more complex, intense, and even a bit scary (though it's a fall story, not a Halloween story). One illustration even has the characters squabbling so heatedly that the symbols for cuss-words are floating about. I appreciated the intensity and recommend the story - but you want to read it before sharing it with your tiny ones. Oh, and be sure to buy a cooking pumpkin first, too, because the recipe looks oh-so delicious, and nutritious. ( )

30 months - A story about pumpkin soup that's not a Halloween story. Very cute and O just loved it and wanted to read it over and over. When she was playing in her kitchen she'd use "a pipkin of salt" and make her own pumpkin soup. So cute books influence her play and expands her vocabulary. ( )

This story shows you the true meaning of friendship. I love how even if they get angry with each other they forgave each other and didn't let anything get in the way of there friendship. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0374460310, Paperback)

By the Kate Greenaway Medalist
 
Deep in the woods in an old white cabin, three friends make their pumpkin soup the same way every day. The Cat slices up the pumpkin, the Squirrel stirs in the water, and the Duck tips in just enough salt. But one day the Duck wants to stir instead, and then there is a horrible squabble, and he leaves the cabin in a huff. It isn't long before the Cat and the Squirrel start to worry about him and begin a search for their friend. Rendered in pictures richly evoking autumn, Helen Cooper's delightful story will resonate for an child who has known the difficulties that come with friendship. Included at the end is a recipe for delicious pumpkin soup.
