Review by Booklist Reviews

What is Every Color Soup? A healthy, flavorful blend of fresh vegetables, lentils, and spices simmered in broth or water. As in Hurley's previous picture books, she takes a minimalist approach here to both text and images. Apart from the brief setup ("We are making Every Color Soup. We'll need . . .), only one word appears on most double-page spreads. When it's purple, an enormous eggplant appears against a white background. The green spread features a celery stalk and parsley leaves. More ambiguously, the clear spread shows seven see-though containers of pale green liquid. What is clear—the container, the liquid, or both? Illustrating chop and drop, a chef's brown hands prepare ingredients and add them to the pot. The closing spread includes all the ingredients, labeled, on one side, and the written recipe on the facing page. The large format gives plenty of space for this graphically bold celebration of vegetables. With artwork that shows up particularly well from a distance, this pleasing picture book introduces colors and vegetables while offering opportunities for counting and cooking as well.

Review by School Library Journal Reviews

PreS-Gr 2—Using the flat graphic art style employed in her earlier books, Hurley introduces the very young to a variety of ingredients used to make soup. On a spread that includes a cutting board, knife, wooden spoon, and large soup pot, the text reads, "We are making Every Color Soup./ We'll need…" With each ensuing page turn, youngsters see a spread containing an outsize image of one or two ingredients, rendered in Photoshop, on white background. Except for a jar of blue lentils that might be mistaken for something else, no ingredient is labeled. Only a color word appears in large type. For example, the word "white" is opposite a salt cellar and garlic cloves resting on a table. Seven individual measuring cups of liquid are labeled "clear." Brown hands "chop" the ingredients, "drop" them into the pot, which then "bubble[s]," and finally, a bowl of soup with colorful ingredients floating on top is set out on a checkered cloth. "Yum." Chopped images of the food items within, including dots of pepper, are scattered across the endpapers, and the title page spread cleverly depicts the veggies growing in a garden. Back matter includes a recap of all the ingredients and their names as well as a soup recipe that includes all the foods shown. VERDICT The large colorful illustrations make this versatile offering perfect for a group study of colors and of different foods. Budding cooks will enjoy working with an adult to follow the recipe included.—Marianne Saccardi, Children's Literature Consultant, Cambridge, MA Copyright 2017 School Library Journal.
