Garden Safari Vegetable Soup

Garden Safari Vegetable Soup #ad #giveaway

If your little once loves to help out in the kitchen and help cook, Garden Safari may very possibly be the best first cookbook on the planet!


(I received two complimentary copies. One for my grand daughter and I to review and one to give away to a lucky reader.)




My granddaughter is 5 years old and in Kindergarten.She is at the stage where she desperately wants to read like a big kid, but lacks some of the phonics it will require of her.


Garden Safari provided her with enough clues that she was able to properly decipher what the book said.  She was told it was a cook book and she noticed each page had a giant number.  The vegetables are bright and colorful. The pictures gave her an idea of what you do with each item.

I listened to her as she said, “Step 1” followed by her own directions. She repeated this for every step. She even pretended it was story time and read to her stuffed animals.

She was really exited to see the tomatoes and said they were here favorite.

We decided to go in to grandam’s backyard garden to see what we could find.

She said she had never picked a tomato before. I decided to let her try.

She was really excited and told everyone how she picked her first tomato from a safari

Besides Red Tomatoes, the cookbook calls for orange carrots,  blue potatoes, green celery, yellow onion, brown rice, etc.
