Cucumber Soup by Vickie Leigh Krudwig is full of lovely illustrations and the whole family enjoys reading this tale of bugs who work together, helping some ants move a huge cucumber that has fallen over the entrance to their anthill in the garden. Check out the recipe at the end - it doesn't require cooking, and it uses yogurt with the chunks of cucumber. The ease of preparation, combined with the soup's alternate use as a veggie dip, makes this a fun project to make with the kids!
