Hmmm, a bit too much like Stone Soup, and if you know anything about tumbleweeds, they have sharp parts that stick in your feet, so it wouldn't make a good soup. Also, there ate too many words that a level 2 reader wouldn't know.

Tricky jack rabbit. I thought this book was cute. I love reading little books like this. Besides being cute, it teaches children what goes in a stew.

Cute southwestern variation of stone soup!

Loved the illustrations but this story was way too similar to the well-known stone soup story. Didn’t feel all that original.
Claudia Naranjo
Fun story! It is about a rabbit, Jac, who is very creative. He starts tumbleweed stew that ends being delicious!!!!
I like the fact that the author is from Texas and she uses local animals as characters.
Teachers may use this story along with Stone Soup for a lesson on comparing and contrasting.

Jack Rabbit says it's a great day to make tumbleweed stew, but who wants to eat that? I liked this book because Jack Rabbit wakes up in the night to eat Tumbleweed Stew, instead of the morning. -by Alexander

I like that it's a version of stone soup set in Texas using native flora and fauna. I'll be using it for comparative literature. However, the story (and quality of writing) is a little thin compared to other versions. It doesn't really stand alone as a meaningful piece of children's lit.

Tumbleweed Stew is just another version of Stone Soup. I used it to compare stories of the same genre or topic. This one involves animals, but the rabbit still gets everyone to contribute to make a great stew, which he claimed was called Tumbleweed Stew.

Texas animals makin' some Texas "stone soup". A fun read-a-loud and your listeners will be delighted to join in listing the various ingredients. Add to your Texas themed unit study.

A funny Western version of Stone Soup tales. My boys (ages 5) especially love this one.
