Is it soup day yet?!?!

My favorite soup is baked potato soup- it’s soooo creamy and delicious! Add some Homemade, Easy-peasy Four Ingredient French Bread with it and I’m in HEAVEN.

The idea for this book list actually came to me right in the middle of a soup craving. I was thinking, “man I wish someone would make me some soup” (because I’m not a big fan of cooking), and then I thought how well a good book would be to go with it. A couple soup books immediately came to mind, but I just had to do some research and find more (because I’d much rather “research” on Amazon than cook 😉 ) So for all you soup fans, here’s a hearty list of children’s books you can read to go with your soup days:
