Who Grew My Soup? 2013 Literacy Project

AITC's Literacy Project helps improve both the literacy of Oregon's young readers and their knowledge of agriculture. Who Grew My Soup? is a delightful story about a boy named Phineas who declares he won’t eat his soup until he knows where it came from. To his surprise, a man in a flying tomato balloon shows up to answer this question. Together they fly from farm to farm, learning about the amazing vegetables in his soup and the farmers who grew them.
