    Button Soup (Disney's Wonderful World of Reading) by Walt Disney (Sylak)
    Sylak: Another retelling of the Stone Soup folk tale, with just enough variation to keep both books just interesting enough in their own right.

This was a very popular Big Book when I was in primary school, so goodness knows how many times I ended up reading it in group activities! I think my mother used to have a copy for HER teaching as well.

Vaughan, M. (1986). Wombat Stew. New Jersey: Silver Burdett Press.
This book is most appropriate for preschoolers. The book is about a dingo that gets advice from multiple animals in order to make his wombat stew. The animals cleverly tell the dingo to add ingredients into the stew that will poison the dingo so that he doesn’t eat the wombat. In the end the dingo runs away after eating the stew and the wombat is free to go. The book includes clever rhyming sequences as well as a song at the end.

A classic Australian picture book. When dingo catches a wombat and wants to cook him in a gooey, brewy, yummy, chewy stew he doesn't factor in the other bush animals and their plan to save their friend wombat.

This is a story about a group of animals that pretend to work together to help a Dingo make a Wombat stew. The animals bring items to add to the stew and convince the Dingo to leave the Wombat for last. But the animals have made the stew taste terrible! So the Dingo never adds the Wombat. He thinks he has been poisoned. I like the way the animals use a cooperative strategy to save the Wombat. ( )
