Isabel’s Grandma Rose is definitely different. To begin with, she wears high-top sneakers and tap-dances. But most important of all, Grandma Rose makes soup. When her soup is ready, she spoons it out into jars of all shapes and sizes and packs them up in her old green bag. Then Grandma Rose takes her soup around to people. One day, when Isabel’s mama is sick, Grandma Rose takes Isabel with her. Together, they give away the delicious soup to some very special neighbors. But the more you give, the more you get back – everyone they visit has something for them, too. The expressive illustrations bring the wonderful characters to life in this funny, touching story about the joy of giving.
