    2. I liked this book. In the story, Granny uses the idea of a magic shell to trick the town's people into giving her ingredients to make Kallaloo.

    4. When Granny uses a “magic shell” to make kallaloo, the townspeople contribute meat, vegetables, fresh fish and more to the brew in this version of Stone Soup set in the West Indies.

    6. This book is about a poor grandmother who gets help from a magical shell to make a type of soup called Stone Soup, or more locally known as Kallaloo. The shell tells her what to put in the soup and the people in the Market Square help to gather all of the ingredients. They celebrate the free gumbo like soup and Granny returns the conch shell back into the ocean. This book is great for ESOL students, for teaching dialect, imagery, and fantasy.

    7. Caribbean version of the tale stone soup. In this version, the main character is poor granny who is trying to find something to eat when a shell calls to her from the beach.

    9. Granny needs help making soup and she cannot do it without the help of the people at the market. They help her gather ingredients. I think it is a great way to teach students that you need a "community" in order to truly succeed.

    10. The pictures in this book are really nicely done, but the story line may be hard for children to follow and the words can often be big. It might be intimidating for children to read.

    11. While I personally believe that writing "in dialect" is kind of racist, this is an interesting twist on the "Stone Soup" legend that provides a great opportunity to teach kids about diversity.

    12. This Caribbean version of the classic "Stone Soup" had my mouth watering!I copied out the simple recipe at the end. Now I have to figure out how to make fungee! Ah, soup!
