This charming book tells the story of a skeptical boy who refuses to eat his soup until he finds out who grew each of the ingredients. The story is told with a fun rhyme-scheme and the illustrations are extremely well-crafted. A great way to connect a child to the farmers who grew his or her food while still sharing an entertaining, well-written and engaging story. Super cute story, I have been wanting the book a long time. I do wish I could have gotten it in hardback. Planning to use it during a summer garden program along with the online lesson plans.
I believe this book is a way to engage kids in a discussion about food in a context that they will enjoy and relate to. In his book, Darbyshire features two of the actual farm families that have been growing vegetables for Campbell for generations. Young Phin meets Grant Hitchner and Phillip Perez during his adventure and is able to learn first-hand, who grew the vegetables in the soup that his mother has served. In real-life, the Hitchner family has been growing carrots and other vegetables for Campbell for three generations on their farm in New Jersey, while the Perez family has been growing tomatoes for Campbell for more than 40 years in California. Darbyshire partnered with illustrator C. Payne to bring his creative vision to life. Payne is an award-winning artist, caricaturist and illustrator, whose previous work has appeared on the pages of Time , Rolling Stone , Sports Illustrated and National Geographic.
