A-a-a-a-choo! What happens when a warthog sneezes? First, the soup slops; then someone slithers, and the lamp begins to wobble...Before long, the whole house is a mess! This clever book combines clumsy warthogs with onomatopoeia--the use of words that sound like their meaning--and produces some very slippery results.

Slop Goes the Soup is a great book for pre-schoolers or other youngens who enjoy cool sound effects. This book has them on every page! My two boys adore it - it's another library book-gone-personal-collection. If you notice, there is a yellow feather on almost every page that belongs to the bird that caused all the mess. So I found a cheap yellow feather from my craft stash and tucked it into the front of the book, so the kids can tickle the warthog's nose and make him sneeze! Well worth the purchase!
This is an ideal read for the pre school crowd and those slightly older. The author, Pamela D. Edwards and illustrator, Henry Cole have taken the hapless warthogs we were introduced to in Warthogs in the Kitchen: A Sloppy Counting Book (Noisy Warthog Word Book), and have them making up a batch of soup this time.

The author has used anomatopoeia to describe the havoc the young piglets cause as first a yellow feather from the caged bird causes our first wart hog to sneeze which, in turn, sets off an amazing set of events that keep the children captivated. (top: Have the child try to spot the yellow feather in each frame of the book).

Slop, slither, wobble, crash, bubble, bubble, the kitchen and its contents are quickly set upside down. Of course each of these wonderfully descriptive words is accompanied by delightful pictures of the pigs and their once neat kitchen. The illustrations go perfectly with the text.

I like this work as it can be extended on and on via conversations with the kids. You can have them use these descriptive words already used in new stories and you can explore other words which are not used in the book but are just as effective; swish, ping, smash, plop, boom, are only limited by your imaginative vocabulary. You simply must make sure that the word you make up actually sounds like the noise being made. This is a wonderful exercise in creative word building for the children.

This one has been kids tested with excellent results.

This has always been one of my daughter’s favorite books. She’s three and still wants to hear it almost every night. :)
The Warthog books are great for teaching concepts. This one teaches onomatopoeias in a very entertaining way! The illustrations are hilarious and will have the little ones giggling as one accidents starts a chain disasters!
