A Delightful Recipe

Father & Son Bonding

Joshua Russell’s debut bath time book, Little Boy Soup, fills an overlooked niche in the important bath time genre: Not only is it a delightful, contemporary take on the (hopefully) nightly ritual of bath time, it also promotes quality time between Dad and son.

With fresh, clean visuals by artist Amalia Hillman, and an age-appropriate word count in an easy rhyme by Russell, Little Boy Soup

is a highly recommended recipe for getting pre-schoolers and beginning readers excited about reading and taking a bath—all at the same time.

Also available wherever books and eBooks are sold, and in libraries.

Praise for Little Boy Soup

“Joshua Russell engages children with his winning personality and infectious delivery . . . a winning combination, ‘Little Boy Soup’ has built-in interaction points and lively illustrations that draw out even the shyest children.”

“Joshua Russell’s imaginative bath time picture book, Little Boy Soup is rhythmic and entertaining to read. A creative story with colorful ingredients that makes it a pleasure to share with any young book lover.”

“Little Boy Soup not only is a great story but it actually helps you get your little boys and girls IN the tub eager to make ‘little boy soup’! I’ve been struggling with my three-year-old son and bath time, and this book made it fun and exciting since it gave us both ideas about how to make it more like a game, not like a chore. This technique from the book never occurred to me, being a full-time working mom. Baths have gone from being stressful to being creative quality time with me and my son. No, we can’t wait to see what kind of soup we’re going to make each time! Quality reading and bath time for the whole family is in this beautifully written book.”

“I read Little Boy Soup and was delightfully surprised and thrilled with both the content and extraordinary illustrations. As a parent, grandparent, and educator I found the text engaging and winsome. The unique, eye-catching illustrations have the feel of a pop-up book with an artist’s touch. This is a winner! Only ‘downer,’ it was too short . . . I wanted more!”

“Little Boy Soup is such a sweet and funny story for young children. Bath time is a routine that some kids and parents dread, but this story puts such a fun spin on it, complete with zombies and ninjas! My students and I loved it and I think it would be a great addition to any young child’s library!”
