Pumpkin Soup by Helen Cooper is an enchanting tale of three friends who each have a job to do while making their beloved pumpkin soup!
Though not specifically about Halloween, because this story is about pumpkin soup and has a pumpkin patch full of pumpkins, Halloween is the perfect time of year to read the story.
It's a good springboard for discussions about conflict/resolution....with opportunities to ask your class...."what do you think the friends could have done differently?" or "what would have happened if they let Duck have a turn right away?" "How do you feel when you and your friends get angry with each other?"
I really work hard to choose good picture support for my products-lessons...and easy to read fonts for your young readers! EVERYTHING is pictured in the preview....
