to the giving tree: I loved that they put this recipe up, I remember reading this book in kindergarten and our teacher let us help her make the stone soup, and it was delicious. we actually cleaned off a big stone and put it in the soup!! i recently picked up the book and the author is Marcia Brown. Now that i'm a mom, I'll be reading this book to my son and we'll make the soup together :)
