Carrot Soup

The picture book Carrot Soup by John Segal is a fun book about a rabbit who plants a garden of carrots so that he can enjoy his favorite soup (carrot, of course!). However, when he goes to harvest his crop he discovers that all the carrots are gone! He asks all of his friends but none have seen his carrots. The reader is given hints as to where the carrots have gone through the illustrations. Rabbit goes home dejected but is pleasantly surprised by a party thrown for him by his friends who have made...carrot soup!

I love it when we have an activity to follow up a book. At the end of the book is a recipe for Rabbit's Carrot Soup. The children and I make the soup for our egg decorating party and it's very tasty!
