More About This Book

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
An eccentric, sneaker-wearing grandmother confirms the truth of the title in this endearing story, illustrated with two-color cartoony pictures. As Isabel's mom explains, Grandma Rose does not have much, but ``if she's got it, she has to give some away.'' Thus the bighearted woman makes generous batches of soup for her hungry friends. One day when her mom is in bed with the flu, Isabel accompanies her grandmother as she delivers soup to a vivacious grocer, an artist with purple hair, a toothless storekeeper and his invalid wife, and a goodnatured dance instructor. The bag that held the soup is heavier when they finish their rounds than when they began, as each recipient has given them something. Isabel, in turn, promises to paint pictures for one and all, proving that she has learned an important lesson--and readers of all ages will, too. Ages 4-8. (Oct.)
School Library Journal
Gr 1-3-- Preschooler Isabel and her mother live in a small apartment; her grandmother lives not far away. For fun, Grandma Rose makes soup and distributes it to friends and strangers in the neighborhood. One day, she invites Isabel to come with her. The child has great fun meeting the people on the route and sees that each act of simple kindness is in some way rewarded. Grandma Rose is a strong, independent, and eccentric woman with curly red hair and high-top sneakers. Her sincere generosity is not motivated by any expectations in return. These people go out of their way to care for one another in a simple and genuine way--in a city where Grandma's door is shown to have three locks. Loosely drawn cartoon illustrations are done in black ink with gray and orange watercolor washes. This economy of color helps to reflect the somewhat austere conditions under which the community lives. Facial expressions, gestures, and dialogue convey the deep sense of intergenerational affection and respect. Isabel is a well-loved and happy child who learns at an early age about the joy of reaching out to help others. Ward sustains a light touch and humor throughout. --Alexandra Marris, Rochester Pub .
