Jessie Haas

Author Jessie Haas recommends Pinch and Dash Make Soup, written by Michael J. Daley, illustrated by Thomas Yezerski.  “Pinch and Dash Make Soup is funny, dramatic, and touching, and it’s about food. And friendship. I picked it because I was in the middle of a problem with a friend, kind of a ‘Whose soup?’ problem, and this book made me smile and calm down. Plus I like the author–enough to marry him!”

Pinch and Dash Make Soup (Charlesbridge, 2012) is recommended for ages 5-8.
