Who Grew My Soup?
Who Grew My Soup?

Who Grew My Soup? is a delightful story of a boy named Phineas who declares he won't eat his soup until he knows where it came from. To his surprise, a man in a flying tomato balloon shows up to answer his question. Together they fly from farm to farm, learning about the amazing vegetables in his soup and the farmers who grew them. This story is followed by a lesson where students learn about the five food group and what Washington grown foods fit into each group. This lesson makes a local connection to good nutrition and a healthy lifestyle.
