Little bear woke up one morning his mother was not there. So he made birthday soup because it was his birthday. All his friends liked birthday soup. Read the book to find out what happens next.
I like the book because little bear made soup with carrots, tomatoes, peas, and potatoes. His mother was not there because she was at the store buying cake.
My favorite character is cat because he said if you can make it I will eat it.
I felt happy when I read the book, I wonder what it would be like to have birthday soup. I recommend this book to ages 1 and up.
