About the book:
Maybe it's a play on words, A Soup Opera turned a bit dramatic like a soap opera. Geared towards 3-5 year olds this book was really cute. A great night time, before bed, story time-snuggle up, this book has beautiful artistry from the illustrations to the music. Music, yes, included is a CD to read along with. With characters like the police officer, chef, and president all concerned over a boul of soup this book turns silly very quickly. Written and published by Jim Gill, a musician and trained child development specialist. Read more about the author here. For a slideshow preview visit here. He developed his unique approach of combining word play and movement opportunities into songs through the twenty years spent directing weekly programs in music play for families with children with special needs in the Chicago area. Jim also authored May There Always Be Sunshine which won the 2002 Book Award from the Philadelphia Children's Museum.
As a former musician (I played the violin from 6th grade thru highschool) I learned how music can really set the tone for bigger and grander moments. Movies would be nothing without soundtracks, what would you do in the car without a radio, how would you clean your house if you couldn't jam to your favorite songs? Music keeps life in step and up to tempo. My kids learn so much better when we make up silly songs, we have a pee-pee in the potty song, vowels, addition, the list goes on. This book is great for those just learning to read also. With bigger fonts for "singing" time and reagular font for the story telling the illustrations come to life.
