Heartwarming story with realistic pictures

Bought it because of the great reviews. My 1yo daughter is captivated by the realistic pictures of the boy and his mother, and their kitchen. She keeps pointing to details such as the gas stove and asking for their names. Great for language learning!

So lovely that your daughter is so inquisitive, and this book captures her attention (: Thanks for your review, Sarah!


This book is oh-so-relatable because I've been cooking green bean soup on a weekly basis for my girl. after reading the book, I got her to help me wash the green beans before we cooked it. Can't wait to try making the green bean popsicles and growing green beans together with her! yet another wonderful buy. enjoyed the read alot.

Enjoyable read

While the words are few, there were many pictures and alot of facial expressions to talk about. A very fun book to read for a 4yo.

My child keeps asking for this book!

Over the past two weeks, my child has been asking to read this book every day. It has very detailed and colourful illustrations which captures the attention of young ones. A simple storyline about daily activities involving a mother and child, but focusing on the various uses of a green bean. Love the hardcover!
