Picture book for young readers

When Rudie is sick, his babysitter Mrs Gittel makes him chicken soup with her secret ingredient: stories from the heart. When she gets the flu, he uses her recipe to make her soup, including sweet memories of their friendship.
And soon she is feeling good as new!

An easy-to-follow recipe is included


A heartwarming tale of friendship

Charming & poignant

This look at an inter-generational friendship is as satisfying as a bowl of chicken soup

As the pot simmers, Rudy recounts 3 experiences that he shared with his beloved sitter, ordinary occurrences that demonstrate the affection the two friends have for one another

Incorporating lots of details, this folksy telling is as comfortable as a grandmother's embrace. The illustrations illustrate the special relationship between the boy & his caregiver

Cosy & comforting. Love & care radiate from the pages

It will inspire children to get into the kitchen so they can put stories in their own soup

A sweet, warming story about love & companionship, sharing and caring

Children age 4-8 will love the repetition of this sweet story
