9781927485279: Community Soup

In a garden outside a Kenyan schoolhouse, children are working together to harvest the vegetables they have grown and make them into a soup for everyone to share. But Kioni is having trouble: her mischievous goats have gotten into the garden and are wreaking havoc on the vegetables! Luckily, the resourceful children find a solution that ensures a tasty soup while saving Kioni's four-legged intruders at the same time.

Using rollicking verse with echoes of "Mary had a Little Lamb," Alma Fullerton tells a lively story about communal projects and finding creative solutions that help everyone contribute. This tale for young readers is graced with Alma's striking mixed-media collage art.

A portion of the proceeds of this book will be donated to the Creation of Hope Project, which supports schools in Kenya in the building of community gardens. Learn more at http://creationofhope.com.

About the Author:

Alma lives in Midland, Ontario.

Review:

"Textured collage illustrations combining natural materials and painted images show the busy children, the corn, pumpkin, sweet potato and other vegetables that make up the soup...[Fullerton] provides a positive picture of community cooperation...For reading aloud or alone, a nourishing choice." (Kirkus Reviews 2013-06-15)

"There’s much to enjoy in Fullerton's textured illustrations, from the goats' wooly hides, to the dark green vegetation in the garden and thickly painted hills in the distance." (Publishers Weekly 2013-06-03)

"Fullerton's incredible 3D collage illustrations in mixed media fairly leap off the page and cleverly complement the text. Sticks, grass, ropes, material, and fur are all put to inventive use and enhance the marvelous paper artwork. Adding to the energetic feel of the art is the use of the bold colors and expressive faces...Community gardening is at the heart of this delightful picture book, and one can sense the importance of this concept to the author...Highly Recommended." (CM Magazine 2013-06-07)

"The book’s spare text warmly invites the reader into the daily life of the village. The simple sentences have a conversational tone and the superb pacing makes for a lively read aloud...[Fullerton's] paper-sculpture illustrations are a visual feast...Textures seem tactile, from the rough, peeling bark on twigs to the softly curling tufts of the goats’ hair.Community Soup offers a satisfying blend of cooperation, hard work, and play." (Quill & Quire 2013-06-01)

“'It’s soup day!' The first line of this story draws readers into a day-in-the-life of Kenyan school community, which Fullerton depicts with mixed-media collage and paper-sculptures that lend a diorama-like depth to each scene...A satisfying and worthy purchase, a portion of this book’s earnings goes to the Creation of Hope Project, which supports community gardens at Kenyan schools." (Reading Today Online 2013-07-26)

"With echoes of 'Mary Had a Little Lamb,' this amusing tale set in a Kenyan school garden tells the story of students and their teachers making soup...A fun read-aloud, with lots of opportunities for listeners to predict the upcoming action. The full-color, mixed-media collages steal the show. The illustrations add texture and vibrancy to the tale and advance the plot on several wordless pages. The book ends with a recipe for pumpkin vegetable soup. A great choice for group sharing or for units on communities." (School Library Journal 2013-08-01)

"A fun read that helps children the way of life of Kenyan school children and how different life is from their own." (Resource Links 2013-10-01)
