Soup Is On!

What does eating soup have to do with reading the book, The Tale of Despereaux?  Fourth Grade students are engaged in reading the Newberry Award Book, as part of the 4th grade Reading Curriculum.  What could be more appealing to students: Desperaux Tilling, a small mouse of unusual talents, the princess that he loves, the servant girl who wants to be a princess, and a devious rat determined to bring them all to ruin?  According to the students a main event in the book has a direct link to soup.  Several parents volunteered to send in and help serve different types of soup for the students to sample.
