Review:This gentle book softly celebrates teamwork, cultural diversity, the pleasures of the garden and the comfort of the kitchen. Written in rhyme (which you will find yourself reciting, even when there are no children in hearing distance) the text traces the adventure of, well, making minestrone, from the planning stages, to the harvesting of ingredients, to the preparation in the kitchen. A simple-to-follow recipe for minestrone allows readers to have their own minestrone adventures.
