Today's great title is Soup.
Third-grader Rob and his friend Soup are the source of nonstop mischief.Download and listen to this great eAudioBook with your kids, from your library today!
Set in rural Vermont in the 1920's, Soup sets the stage for some funny and poignant episodes for kids growing up - bullies at school, a very proper church matron is put in her place by the two and a local junk dealer catches them trying to cheat him. The old barrel and the chicken coop mishap is a favorite scene.
Some things never change and mischief is one of them. Otherwise, it is interesting for young listeners to hear of the differences between today and growing up poor on a Vermont farm.
