What should Elmo and Cookie Monster put into their alphabet vegetable soup? As the two chefs work their way from A to Z, they consider an ingredient for every letter, from the obvious to the simply silly. Should they use apples? Not for vegetable soup! Broccoli and carrots? Yes! What about dishtowels or feathers? Of course not! Toddlers will enjoy helping to decide what will make the yummiest soup—while learning the alphabet, too. A large lift-the flap-at the end of this sturdy board book reveals Elmo, Cookie, and friends enjoying the finished soup as the noodles form an alphabetical panorama rise from the pot.
