Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

One by one, 10 very hungry rabbits find 10 very yummy vegetables for Mama Rabbit's soup pot. Caldecott Honor Book artist Anita Lobel combines learning to count with color concepts in this mouth-watering celebration of good things to eat. One big purple cabbage, two white onions, three yellow peppers, and so on through 10—garden vegetables have never looked so appetizing! Here Anita Lobel makes a delightful story for preschoolers with the two most basic early learning concepts, counting and color. And her beautiful illustrations of vegetables might even tempt picky eaters into new adventures in eating!

Review:

"Lobel smoothly weaves together a counting and color lesson in this trim book that follows 10 rabbits as they find vegetables for their mother's soup. The color of each rabbit's vegetable matches his or her clothing, as well as the corresponding numerals and name of each color. On the way up to 10, the fourth rabbit 'picked four red tomatoes,' while the seventh rabbit 'spotted seven brown mushrooms.' After Papa Rabbit slices the medley of colorful vegetables, and Mama swirls the soup on the stove, 'The Rabbit family sat down to bowls of delicious vegetable soup. Yum! The happy rabbits were hungry no more.' Lobel's gouache and watercolor portraits, rendered in her familiar folk art style, recall impressionist paintings — each soup component, writ large, takes up most of its page, while the rabbits scour the garden in panels below. Ages 1 — up. (Feb.)" Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
