This was a fun book to read. I read it by myself and I was sitting there laughing. The poor family had a rich aunt that came to visit. This just make me think of how I would clean up the house to make it look better when I'm about to have guess. We try our best to make sure that everything is perfect. Overall, it's not about how things look, but about family. Family shouldn't have to worry about those things.

This book is about a family who lives on a farm. Papa Joe receives a letter from Aunt Tootie, who is very fancy, that explains that she is coming for a visit. To make Aunt Tootie feel welcomed, Mama Sue fixes a very "peppery" and hearty stew.
I would use this book in my classroom to study vowel sounds and to discuss why communication is very important.

This book discusses a family living on a farm with an aunt coming to visit! The aunt happens to be very fancy and they are worried they won't be able to impress her. This is a good book to read in class when their is extra time left at the end of the day or between subjects!

Mama Sue prepared a pot of stew but forgot the pepper. She asks each family member to add some but they all claim they are too busy. In the end they all add plenty of pepper to the pot and you can imagine the result. A cute story.

This is such a funny book. Students will enjoy the repetition and the ending. Feeding a fancy family member may not always be easy, which is why this book can relate to adults as well. A quick read that is enjoyable for all ages.

Another childhood favourite - and again, its follows the theme of food. A great read aloud book with lots of opportunity for doing voices for characters, and really taking it over the top.
