Early chapter book...first grade into second...Pinch and Dash a good friends and very silly...they each have some items for soup and decide to throw them together...I personally enjoyed the fact that they lived on each end of an attached home...this was never mentioned yet poor Pinch has to walk 'all the way home' each time to grab an additional item...a very sweet read.
"Pinch and Dash Make Soup" is a cute picture book about friends who learn to work together to achieve their common goal despite their differences of opinion. This book is well-written and nicely illustrated. It includes a recipe for Pinch and Dash's soup that young readers can make with the help of an adult.

Full disclosure: I received a signed ARC as a first-reads giveaway.
Cute book. I am trying to figure out what level of reader it would be best for. I would think the words are too tricky for beginning readers. However, the story is a little too simple for more experienced readers. I would imagine that if you were doings. stone soup unit or project this might be a fun additional read.

Pinch is hungry. Dash is cooking. Together they decide to make a soup. But, Pinch wants pepper and hot sauce. Dash doesn't. How will these friends resolve their problem? A cute story that young readers can identify with. It shows cooperation, caring, and compromise.

Move over Frog and Toad, George and Martha, and all the other great pairs. I must be on a soup kick today because this would be great to use for a reading group followed by a hot cup of spinich and potato soup.
Pinch and Dash are an odd couple, but good friends. They run into trouble making soup together. I like this early chapter book.

A good book for early readers just past the stage of Dr. Seuss's beginner books. My boys liked it.
Different take on the classic tale of Stone Soup. Great book for early readers.
Nicely illustrated. New spin on Stone Soup with a twist at the end.
Fine. Didn't draw me in, but I'm good with it this tale of a spat over soup.

I have enjoyed a life-long love of science, machines, and science fiction. These passions inform my fiction and non-fiction writing with a unique spirit. I am currently branching out with easy readers, the fulfillment of a long held dream begun with the discovery of the Frog & Toad books. My third passion is energy issues and with the help of my wife, Jessie Haas, we built a solar powered cabi...more
