Every day Cat, Duck and Squirrel make a yummy pumpkin soup together. They always do it just the same way! But one day Duck decides to stir things up and make the soup a different way instead! Soon the friends are squabbling, the pumpkin soup is burning, and a very cross Duck is running away… Now he’s out all alone in the dark, dark night of foxes and wolves and bears and witches. When his upset friends go out to look for him, can they bring Duck home to share the pumpkin soup again? Brimming with warm autumnal colours and delicious aromas, this gorgeous story of friendship and sharing won the Kate Greenaway Medal for illustration.
Our October 2020 Ages 5-6 Book of the Month
My pick for October is a faithful classic that has become much beloved, and I’ve selected it because I think it’s the perfect ‘snuggle up and share’ bedtime story for those approaching October dark, autumnal nights – when the light dims and you want a brilliant bedtime read full of character and warmth. If you like a book with a pinch of heart and a cosy, traditional and classic feel (with illustrations as warm as the fireside), this is for you. Cat, Duck and Squirrel follow the same routine every day to make their pumpkin soup. Each has their own set role. Each is happy. Until Duck decides he fancies a change…
Helen Cooper conjures up a tale that moves from calm to chaotic with shades of funny and feisty. We learn that families take the form of all different shapes, but everyone has their own place and sometimes there are ups and downs! Love, friendship, empathy and understanding underpin this story. A great tale to get families reading together and stats show that reading for pleasure is strongly influenced by parents who read to children at home. I have very fond memories of reading this aloud to my children at this time of year. What are your favourites?
