Gr. 1-2. Josh is tired of his peanut butter and jelly sandwich, but when his friend, Rosa, offers him some of her mud soup ("Delicioso "), he's appalled. Are worms wiggling in the glop? The same thing happens when he visits her house, and Rosa's abuela asks him to stay for dinner. Of course, he finds out that mud soup is black bean soup, and after tasting it, he agrees that it is delicioso. The occasional Spanish words add to the cross-cultural fun in this Step into Reading title, and Guevara's clear, bright, active illustrations extend the affectionate friendship story, which will be enjoyed by both Latino and Anglo kids learning to read.
