If you have kids, fix them a bowl of soup and keep the warm feelings going by reading one of these soup books:
Davis, Aubrey. Bone Button Borscht. [JP DAV]

Iwai, Melissa. Soup Day. [JP IWA]
A mother and child spend a snowy day together buying and preparing vegetables, assembling ingredients, and playing while their big pot of soup bubbles on the stove. Includes a recipe for "Snowy Day Vegetable Soup."
Meddaugh, Susan. Martha Blah Blah. [JP MED]
When the current owner of the soup company breaks the founder's promise to have every letter of the alphabet in every can of soup, Martha, the talking dog, takes action.
Rodman, Mary Ann. Surprise Soup. [JP ROD]
Kevie, excited by the prospect of being a big brother, helps make a special soup to welcome his mother and new sibling home from the hospital.
Root, Phyllis. Soup for Supper. [JP ROO]
A wee small woman catches a giant taking the vegetables from her garden and finds that they can share both vegetable soup and friendship. [Note: when I used to do storyhours, this was one of my favorite titles to read aloud!]
