"Soup Day" by Melissa Iwai


“On a cold, snowy day, a young girl and her mother shop to buy ingredients for vegetable soup. At home, they work together — step by step — to prepare the meal. While the soup is cooking, they spend the time playing games and reading. Before long, Daddy's home and the family sits down to enjoy a home-made dinner. This book celebrates the importance of making a nutritious meal and sharing in the process.”

Can you show me the orange carrot?

Orange carrot, orange carrot?

And wave it in the air?


Purple… yellow… red… green



Hold It High – Choose one carrot from handouts

Hold your carrot high and stand

Now wave it around in gestures grand!

Hold your carrot below your chin

Now hold it way up high again


Hold your carrot against your nose

Now touch the carrot to your toes

Touch your carrot to the ground

Now wave that carrot all around!


Hold your carrot in front of you

Now turn around – one time, two!

Hold your carrot and jump up high!

Now let your carrot fly fly fly (throw it in the air)
