pumpkinsoupThis book was recommended to me by a friend, and I can see why.  The pleasant rhymes and great, colorful illustrations really hook students.  They loved this book!

Synopsis: Cat, Duck and Squirrel live together in an old white cabin.  They love to make pumpkin soup together.  Cat slices the pumpkin, squirrel stirs the soup, and Duck puts in the salt.  When Duck decides he would like to stir the soup, the friends fight.  Duck leaves the cabin.  When he doesn’t return by supper, Cat and Squirrel make pumpkin soup by themselves.  But, it’s too salty!  Worried about Duck out at night in the dark woods, Cat and Squirrel go outside to find him.  Thinking the Duck left them to find better friends who will let him help, they return to the cabin.  There is Duck!  The friends decide to make soup and kindly look the other way as Duck makes all sorts of mistakes stirring the soup by himself.
