    One thought on “Alphabet Soup”

    1. This book is very awesome. He is a picky eater, and his words show it! this book would catch attention. It would be good for the kids who can relate to him, the picky eater

    2. Alphabet Soup by Kate Banks is a wonderful book about a young boy who refuses to eat his dinner, and instead spells out the word bear with his alphabet soup as he growls like his bear to his mother. His dinner table comes to life in full illustration, he travels with bear up a fruit bowl mountain and battles a salt shaker with a fork sword. Each object he needs such as a rope or boat he acquires by spelling the word out with his alphabet soup. Boy and bear use the teapot to sleep in and ride out [...]

    3. This book was amazing! I think that this should be in all lower grade classrooms. My favorite part is how every part of the book is actually spelled out in the kid's soup bowl. The illustrations are wild, and can open up a child's imagination to places not yet discovered. I will have this in my collection for sure!

    4. Anyone who has tried to make words in their alphabet soup would like the imaginative tale of this little boy who is bored during his lunch and entertains himself with his soup and the items on the table. The softly muted illustrations by Peter Sis are very good, although not nearly as dramatic as those from some of his stories. Our girls enjoyed this story.

    5. This is a kind of "Harold and the Purple Crayon" story in which a boy chooses letters from his alphabet soup and the word appears before him. It starts with a bear and the adventure begins. Illustrations by Peter Sis add a surreal touch.

    6. Weird, kind of racist illustrations in my opinion, and the kid is mean to animals for no apparent reason.

    7. This is such a great book. This is great for early spellers that you may have in your class. It also exposes all the children to spelling. This is a good tool for language.
